Nokia China has reduced its sales areas and laid off staff

recently, Nokia (Weibo) China announced the cancellation of two sales areas and the merger of the original four sales areas in the southeast, northwest and North into two areas, the greater South and the greater north. Gao Xiang, Nokia China Consulting Director, told the IT times that there would be layoffs in the adjustment of the sales area in order to simplify the structure and better respond to market reactions, but the specific list and number of people are not yet available

according to the employees of Nokia Shanghai who are about to leave, most of the managers in Shanghai will be laid off, but the employees' mentality is relatively calm, and they expect Nokia to turn around and regularly check whether there is oil leakage in the host and oil source

employees are known to be laid off

some media said that two PR of Nokia Shanghai company resigned in the past few months and were associated with this adjustment because some employees were asked to work in Beijing and were unwilling to leave Shanghai. However, an employee of the marketing department of Nokia Shanghai told that this statement was purely speculative: in fact, there has been no PR in Shanghai for more than a year. The specific reason for their resignation is unclear, but it should not be a personal reason. The employee said that the adjustment and layoffs in the sales area were real, and he had made it clear that he would leave: after the management of the Shanghai company was merged into the north area, 99% of the sales management staff would be dismissed

according to his introduction, the original Nokia Shanghai office was divided into two parts: the Shanghai team and the East China management team. The former was responsible for the daily operation in Shanghai, and the latter was responsible for the sales in other provinces in East China. This layoff was mainly aimed at the East China team, which is consistent with Gao Xiang. As for whether any Shanghai employees were required to work in Beijing, the employee said: no one in the marketing department asked us to work in Beijing, just telling us that the Shanghai Branch would be closed and the company would issue a compensation policy. She said that the North District may also need the help of colleagues who know the status of the East District in the past, but according to her understanding, because the North District itself will also have a few layoffs, it will not require too many people to go over: a department needs at most one past, or special situations such as pregnant women. Some departments do not need it because of the limited number of positions

resigned employees can apply for financial support

however, Nokia employees seem to have a lot of feelings for the company at the time of leaving, and they are in the mood of gathering and dispersing, perhaps because they know that the company does need to face challenges again after adjustment. The employee told that the employees knew about the adjustment and layoffs in mid June, when Nokia announced global layoffs, and the impact in China seemed to be fast. The resignation procedures of employees will be completed in August

the company operates according to the notice period stipulated by law. The staff are also relatively calm. Everyone is a professional workplace staff, and there is no difficulty in handing over the work. She said that she had worked in Nokia for many years, and she did feel the gap in the company's situation, but she still had deep feelings

although the outside world criticized Nokia CEO elop a lot, the employees said they didn't blame him: in retrospect, it seems that various strategies are not the problem of elop. LANXESS predicted that its annual growth rate in China could reach 9%, which has been a problem for a long time. Isn't the situation very similar to moto? On the occasion of parting, the employee still gave the company such a blessing: the key is to make their own products and let everyone know

Gao Xiang told the IT times that the company also has special care for resigned employees. Since last year, Nokia has launched an incubator plan specifically for the entrepreneurship of former employees, which will provide support funds for the entrepreneurship plan of former employees. The revision in China also has its own independent funds to carry out this support plan. Dongqing company adheres to the concept of people-oriented and the common development of enterprises and employees. Former employees can apply and come up with a complete business plan, To get the company's recognition: however, this work has just started, and there has not been much feedback yet. Employees can apply for it in the next at least one month

insiders encourage Nokia to start again

for the prospects of Nokia, Zhang Yi, chairman of AI media consulting, said that according to his many visits to Nokia, he found that the cumbersome organization and process of the company was indeed a big problem: it was directly reflected in the fact that many projects were well negotiated, but it was easy to get sloppy. Therefore, he is positive about the determination of Nokia to adjust and start again this time

at the same time, Zhang Yi believes that from the perspective of Nokia's adjustment abroad, the middle and senior levels are often streamlined. Before, Nokia China, for reasons such as convenient language communication, many departments were managers from Malaysia, Indonesia and other people who understand Chinese and English. These managers were paid a high salary, but they only played the role of transmitting information, and sometimes became an obstacle to information, which should also be streamlined

Zhang Yi doesn't seem to be optimistic about Nokia China employees applying for incubation funds to start a business after leaving: not everyone will have the genes of entrepreneurs. I wonder if the outside world has found that many salons and forums held in China have never been attended by Nokia people. They seem to be used to staying in the environment of large companies
