Microsoft Grapples with Third Round of Layoffs

The third round of layoffs is a component of the 10,000 job reduction announced by Microsoft earlier this year.

A third round of layoffs at Microsoft has taken place and has affected workers in positions related to supply chain, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things (IoT). The third round is an aftermath of the 10,000 job reduction announced by Microsoft earlier this year.

According to reports, job losses occurred at different levels, functions, teams, and locations. Records show that the IT firm recently let go 689 workers in Washington state. 

Microsoft notified Washington State that 617 employees had been laid off in February. The company informed California’s state government that 108 employees had been laid off in the same month.

The business will make changes that will result in the reduction of overall staff by 10,000 positions until the end of FY23 Q3, according to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s announcement in January. Today, Microsoft employs more than 220,000 people, and about 5% of its staff was laid off.
