Microsoft to Sack Thousands of Workers in Sales Shake-up

Microsoft is laying off thousands of employees in a shake-up aimed at selling more subscriptions to software applications that can be used on any internet-connected device.

Most of the people losing their jobs work in sales and are located outside the U.S. The Redmond company confirmed that it began sending the layoff notices Thursday, but declined to provide further specifics, except that thousands of sales jobs would be cut.

"Like all companies, we evaluate our business on a regular basis," Microsoft said in a statement. "This can result in increased investment in some places and, from time to time, redeployment in others."

Microsoft Corp. employs about 121,500 people worldwide. Nearly 71,600 of them work in the U.S.
