Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

Microsoft is eliminating 2,100 workers today as part of its previously announced plan to cut 18,000 jobs over the next year.

In a statement to PCMag, a Microsoft spokesperson said the reductions are taking place across a variety of teams, though there's no word as to which departments will be hit hardest.

"The reductions happening today are spread across many different business units, and many different countries," the spokesperson said. "We will continue to go through this process in the most thoughtful manner possible, with the deepest respect for affected individuals and recognition of their service to the company. We will offer severance to all affected employees."

Bloomberg reported that some 747 workers will be laid off in the Puget Sound region, where Microsoft is based.

Microsoft in July axed 13,000 employees in the first wave of layoffs. The reductions come as Microsoft works to integrate the Nokia handset business it acquired in April for $7.2 billion. Following the Nokia deal, Microsoft's employee headcount rose from about 99,000 last year to 127,000.

About 12,500 of the 18,000 total layoffs planned for this year will come from Nokia, including professional and factory workers.

In a July memo to employees, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (pictured) said the company would largely nix work on Android-based devices. "We plan to shift select Nokia X product designs to become Lumia products running Windows," he wrote. "This builds on our success in the affordable smartphone space and aligns with our focus on Windows Universal Apps."
