Wednesday 28 June 2017 | 10:29 CET | News
BT Italia has announced plans to cut 205 jobs from its total workforce of 950 with a view to improving efficiency and identifying new growth areas. In a statement, BT's troubled Italian unit said the industrial plan is part of the restructuring of BT's Global Services division announced by the parent company in May. The aim is to prioritise innovation in cloud-based platforms and new technologies such as dynamic network services and virtualisation to target growing business segments and support the digital transformation of its customers, said BT Italia.
