Satya Nadella has sent a memo to the Microsoft employees on biggest-ever job cuts and integration of Nokia devices and services. Nokia head, Stephen Elop, also addresses its employees on the situation in a separate email.

The new head of Microsoft in place of Steve Ballmer, Satya Nadella in a memo to his huge firm’s employees explained his position. He talked about how within the next year or so Microsoft was to cut 18,000 jobs. 

And of these the Nokia Department jobs that will get sliced add up to about 12,500. The current attempt at slashing careers included 13,000 positions within the organization. 

Over the next half year, the employees who will get laid off will be told so within the nick of time. And while downsizing is part of the equation of lean thinking taking place at Microsoft, upsizing is another track the enterprise is following. 

In other words, growth is taking place alongside a little pruning. The utmost help will be offered to the laid-off employees in matters having to do with finding new jobs and vocational adjustment.

"My promise to you is that we will go through this process in the most thoughtful and transparent way possible. We will offer severance to all employees impacted by these changes, as well as job transition help in many locations, and everyone can expect to be treated with the respect they deserve for their contributions to this company,"states Satya Nadella in his email.

Accountability, modernization and management were the three watchwords on the basis of which the behemoth was to function in the future. Some major changes would be made in order to radically transform Microsoft from a cumbersome setup to an ultramodern and supersonic conglomerate that would be the envy of so many. 

"Making these decisions to change are difficult, but necessary," states Nadella.

Meanwhile, Stephen Elop who heads the Nokia Department also sent an email to the employees requesting greater cooperation and informing them about the developments that are to occur in the times which are to come. 

The Nokia X and Lumia Series got discussed. And while Satya Nadella’s memo was simply worded, the email by Stephen Elop was so longwinded and complex that it would be a miracle if even a fraction of the employees would be able to understand its meaning at all.

"To align with Microsoft’s strategy, we plan to focus our efforts. Given the wide range of device experiences, we must concentrate on the areas where we can add the most value. The roots of this company and our future are in productivity and helping people get things done," states Stephen Elop in his email. 

Microsoft’s restructuring efforts may pay off in future times or they may backfire. It all depends upon luck and the gumption of its heads not to mention the hard work of the few employees left behind after the layoffs. 

 

"The team transferring from Nokia and the teams that have been part of Microsoft have each experienced a number of remarkable changes these last few years. We operate in a competitive industry that moves rapidly, and change is necessary," said Elop.

The organization that has Bill Gates as its overseer may just flounder through into a brave new world of sorts. Or conversely it may fail in its task. We can only wait patiently and see what actually happens.
