Sony to cut 10,000 jobs

Sony is planning to cut six per cent of its global workforce – around 10,000 jobs – in a major restructuring drive, according to a number of Japanese news reports.

The redundancies will play out over the next 12 months and form part of incoming CEO Kaz Hirai’s strategy to return the electronics giant to profit.
