Google to cut 4,000 employees from Motorola Mobility

In a bid to return its mobile phone business to profitability, Google says it’s planning to reduce the number of employees at its Motorola Mobility subsidiary by around a fifth. Approximately 4,000 of the company’s 20,000 employees are expected to be cut, with two-thirds of the reduction expected to occur outside the US.

In addition, about a third of Motorola’s 90 worldwide facilities are likely to be closed or consolidated.

As well as this, Google says Motorola will start moving away from producing ‘feature phones’ towards the development of more innovative and profitable devices.
