Sony Japan cutting 2,000 jobs at head office
Sony plans to cut 2,000 jobs in Japan with 20% of head office employees leaving at the end of the year through “early retirement.”
Sony believes it will save the company ¥30 billion ($378 million) a year across all divisions. The firm announced earlier this year it planned to cut 10,000 jobs, and it has since closed its Liverpool studio and Zipper Interactive.
During August, Sony reported a $312 million loss for Q1 2012, with a $45 million loss in its gaming division.
