Nokia's international IT organization that will now have to make some sacrifices. 300 IT employees will lose their jobs, while another 820 will be transferred to HCL Technologies and TATA Consultancy Services.

Nokia plans to compensate the employees affected by the planned reductions by offering them some kind of financial support and entering them in the Bridge support program, which will help them find another job in their field.
