Yahoo Planning To Lay Off Workers

Word is spreading all over the Internet that Yahoo is planning on laying off hundreds of employees this year. It's never good news to hear that people will be losing jobs but we must consider the company's position along with the status of the economy. Yahoo laying off hundreds of employees is not the first case of a global company cutting jobs and it most likely won't be the last. It is very difficult for any company, including Yahoo, to go head to head with Google. At the moment it's uncertain which departments will be experiencing the most cuts, but Yahoo does plan to focus its business on a few crucial areas. A guess would be that they will continue placing great emphasis on search engine quality, but the rest is really unknown. Stay tuned to learn more.

Indeed, it will never feel good when there is news of cost cutting, laying off staff etc. Yahoo has been testing too many things for the past few years and lost it's focus, this year is a crucial year for Yahoo, it is going to be really bad for them if they fail to turn things around within this year.
