According to several people who are close to the Research in Motion, BlackBerry maker RIM is preparing for a major global restructuring beginning in the next couple of weeks that will see it eliminate at least 2,000 jobs across its worldwide operations.
According to news Research in Motion has approx 16,500 employees worldwide currently.
One person who is very close with the company’s plans said the layoffs may cut even deeper than that.
New figures from National Bank Financial and research firm IDC suggest that RIM’s BlackBerry now accounts for only 7 per cent of global smartphone shipments.
