February 01, 2012

Feb. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Microsoft Corp., the world’s largest software maker, said it’s cutting a “small percentage” of marketing jobs as part of a reorganization of the department that was reported previously.

“Given the rapid changes in technology and the shifts in how our customers connect with Microsoft, great marketing is more important than ever to Microsoft’s future success,’’ Microsoft said in a story. “We’re taking steps to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our marketing, and to strengthen career paths for marketers at Microsoft. Some of these changes involved the reduction of a small percentage of marketing positions, to better align our resources with our business needs and clarify roles across the marketing function.”
