Microsoft is cutting thousands of positions as part of its latest round of layoffs

One of the largest technological corporations in the world, Microsoft, is getting ready to lay off thousands of employees in response to the slowing global economy.

This is just the latest step the company has taken to cut its personnel. The US software giant may reveal intentions to delete a sizable number of posts from throughout the globe. According to reports, Microsoft, which has more than 220,000 employees worldwide, including 6,000 in the UK, is thinking of laying off about 5% of them, or roughly 11,000 positions.

On Tuesday night, that number could not be confirmed, but according to one analyst, Wall Street would be shocked if it wasn’t higher. Also undetermined was whether or how many roles with UK bases may be impacted.
