Siemens to slash thousand jobs

on August 21, 2012

FRANKFURT—German engineering giant Siemens, which is increasingly feeling the effects of the economic downturn, is to axe “thousands” of jobs, the financial daily Boersen Zeitung reported on Tuesday.

Last month, Siemens chief executive Peter Loescher said the company was drawing up a program to cut costs, boost productivity and efficiency.

 While the program would not primarily be implemented by reducing the headcount, job cuts could not be ruled out completely, Loescher said at the time.

 At the end of July, Siemens warned that it would be harder to achieve its annual profit targets, as the gloomy global economic mood weighs on orders, especially in the field of renewable energy.

 It was the second time Siemens had been forced to revise down its targets this year.
