Microsoft Tempts Chinese Employees to Quit, Offering Free Smartphone

Microsoft is now offering a Nokia Lumina 630 smartphone as an incentive for Chinese employees who voluntarily quit. The offer is good for up to 300 workers per day, Microsoft inherited a huge workforce when it purchased Nokia’s handset business in April 2014 for $7.2 billion and said it intends to cut 18,000 employees—about 14 percent of its global workforce—, including 12,000 Nokia workers, from its payroll by 30 June 2015.
