Another worldwide round of layoffs are coming to BlackBerry as the struggling smartphone manufacturer tries to make its device business profitable.
The cuts will impact those working on the software, hardware and applications side of the business.
The company currently employs about 7,000 people internationally.
BlackBerry, which only a decade ago was a titan in the smartphone business, has been forced into a major reorganization focusing more on software and services since being overtaken in the market for mobile devices.
An IDC survey showed BlackBerry managed to capture just 0.4% of global smartphone sales in 2014.
