Motorola Mobility to cut 4,000 jobs
13 Aug 2012
Mobile phone maker Motorola Mobility is to cut 4,000 job roles worldwide as part of a restructuring program.
The company was bought by Google last year, and said it planned to close or merge about one third of its 90 production and research facilities. The job cuts are equivalent to 20% of the company’s workforce.
Two thirds of the jobs will be lost outside of the US, where Motorola is based. The firm has announced a shift in emphasis away from smartphones to what it described as “more innovative and profitable devices.”
A Motorola Mobility statement said: “Motorola is committed to helping them through this difficult transition and will be providing generous severance packages, as well as outplacement services to help people find new jobs.”
Flexible Working Hours helps to maintain a Work/Life balance
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees. One way to do this is by implementing flexitime.
One of the main advantages of automating the process is that via FUSION, employees have access to their own attendance information e.g. hours worked, flexi balances etc.
In terms of flexitime, this means that employees are always aware of when they are close to reaching their target banked debit or credit hours and can take time off or work more hours accordingly. This, in turn, significantly reduces the number of queries to HR and payroll allowing these departments to get on with more strategic initiatives.
