Microsoft to Cut 60 more Employees Jobs from Irish Workforce

Microsoft is planning to reduce its Irish workforce by 60 people as part of a plan to save money around the world.

Microsoft Ireland has announced that it is cutting 120 jobs, bringing the total number of Irish-based layoffs to 180.

The company employs a lot of people in Ireland, including people who work in different roles such as operations, sales, engineering, and product development.

Irish-based staff were told today that they will be losing another 60 jobs.

It is understood that because Microsoft operates in many different countries, the cuts to its global operations will take some time to be felt in Ireland.

In January, Microsoft announced that it plans to make some job cuts. This is a tiny number of the total number of people who work at Microsoft.

At the time, chief executive Satya Nadella said that customers wanted to “optimize their digital spending to do more with less” and “exercise caution as some parts of the world are in a recession and other parts are anticipating one”.

A lot of companies have been announcing layoffs lately in the tech sector. This means that a lot of people who work in this industry have lost their jobs.
