More Motorola Mobility Staff In China Lose Jobs

Google just announced a new round of layoffs targeting Motorola Mobility and 1,200 employees will lose their jobs, accounting for about 10% of all employees in the company.

The layoffs will reportedly affect employees in China, U.S. and India, though the amount of redundant employees for each region are not yet available.

Motorola reportedly sent an email to its employees, announcing this layoff plan. Soon after that, Google made a public announcement, confirming the news.

After being acquired by Google, Motorola Mobility faced a difficult restructuring process. In August 2012, Motorola announced plans to cut about 4,000 employees around the world, accounting for 20% of its total staff. Meanwhile, the company shut down one-third of its 94 offices worldwide. Its executive team also experienced large-scale changes and nearly half of its vice presidents departed their positions.

In early December 2012, Motorola announced its decision to withdraw from the South Korean market in 2013, cutting over 500 employees. At the end of that month, Google said it would sell Motorola's set-top box business Motorola Home to the American cable device maker Arris for USD2.35 billion.
