Nokia asks 1,000 staff to take voluntary redundancies


Work for Nokia, and fancy a bit of a change of scenery? Well, now is a good time, because the company is inviting its employees to quit with a “voluntary resignation package”. Nokia says that it’s attempting to avoid the need for ‘involuntary redundancies’. Nicely put.

Nokia staff have between March 1 and May 31 to apply for the scheme, or until 1,000 employees have applied. The company is also encouraging employees to take time off rather than exchanging holiday for cash, and granting short-term unpaid leave to anyone who wants to take it.
