More than 1,000 Nokia Corp. workers based in Finland have reportedly left their posts, Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat reported late Friday.
Quote:
Mauri Pekkarinen, Finland’s Minister of Economic Affairs, confirmed to the newspaper that the Finnish government had received notice from Nokia that the company was planning future staff reductions. While he declined to provide details on the precise scale of the cuts, Minister Pekkarinen did hint to the Helsinki-based newspaper that the number will not be small.
