Microsoft is pulling back on hiring quotas for its Windows, Office and Teams chat and conferencing software groups.
The company is apparently readjusting staffing needs in reaction to a global economy that’s been buffeted by rising prices, supply chain problems, and spillover effects from war in Ukraine. The move was first reported by Bloomberg.
“As Microsoft gets ready for the new fiscal year, it is making sure the right resources are aligned to the right opportunity. Microsoft will continue to grow headcount in the year ahead and it will add additional focus to where those resources go,” the company said in a statement.
