BlackBerry Lays Off over 200 Employees, Shrinks Even More
« on: February 08, 2016, 10:06:58 AM »

It looks like BlackBerry laid off around 200 employees from its offices in Canada and the United States. Even though the company hasn't made any announcements initially, as soon as the news made headlines, it issued a short statement confirming the information.

?As BlackBerry continues to execute its turnaround plan, we remain focused on driving efficiencies across our global workforce. As a result, approximately 200 employees have been impacted in Canada and Florida.?

?For those employees that have recently left the company, we know that they have worked hard on behalf of our company and we are grateful for their commitment and contributions,? explains BlackBerry.

BlackBerry is in the process of shutting down most departments that continue to bleed money, and the mobile division seems to have been hit the hardest.

In fact, according to the latest reports, the 150 employees laid off recently come from BlackBerry 10 and Devices teams, which suggests the Canadian company is shifting all resources to Android.
