Google laying off 1,200 employees from Motorola under the restructuring plan

March 9, 2013

Google began yesterday laid off 1,200 employees from Motorola Mobility subsidiary, which constitutes about 10% of the total workforce of the company, and that includes staff from the company’s offices in both the United States and China and India. This comes within the policy of rationalization of resources and restructuring in which the company began last year, where she previously laid off 4,000 employees.

The company promised to demobilize employees under the terms of a fair guarantee them continued to get paid for the abundance of certain pending employees find another job.

Google had acquired Motorola Mobility for $ 12.5 billion as the company was suffering from heavy losses, but Google has benefited from more than 17 thousand patents owned by Motorola in the field of communications and mobile phones. Google believes that the staff reduction policy will contribute to the rationalization of the high costs and help the company to focus more on industry less higher quality products.

So far, Motorola still operates independently from Google and produce their phones without the impact of Google, but that the two companies are working together now to produce jointly phone codenamed X Phone says leaks that it would be a leap in the world of smart phones.
