IBM, a tech powerhouse, is cutting up to 4000 jobs

Since 2022, the tech sector has experienced massive layoffs, and the situation is dire. In the midst of all of this, IBM is the most recent business to announce layoffs after falling short of its cash goals. The favorable effects of earlier gains were diminished as a result of the company's shares falling 2% in extended trading.

According to a Reuters article, the corporation was still "dedicated to hiring for client-facing research and development," according to James Kavanaugh, the chief financial officer. Additionally, IBM stated that the layoffs "will incur a $300 million charge in the January-March period" and are "connected to the separation of its Kyndryl business and a component of Watson Health."

The affected departments and the start date for the initial round of layoffs are both unknown.
