Siemens will remove another 4,500 jobs




Siemens is again cut in the number of jobs, although it is a relatively modest reorganization. The German conglomerate will delete 4,500 of the 340,000 jobs. It is unclear whether there are job losses in the Netherlands and Belgium.

The 4,500 job losses come on top of an earlier round of layoffs that affected 7,400 Siemens employees, reports Reuters. At present, Siemens has 340,000 employees, including 115,000 in Germany. It is not clear where the layoffs will fall exactly. Until now, Siemens always cautious reorganisations in his native Germany, where the unions have a dominant position.

Or Siemens in the Netherlands and Belgium will make layoffs, must still prove. The Dutch branch of Siemens wants on that in any case “no communication” do. Siemens suffers from sluggish business results. The company in its latest reorganization, however, signaled no farewell to want to take on businesses that are doing less well.
