Finnish mobile communications company Nokia announced on Monday (4 September) that the company will start identifying which employees from its corporate support platforms will transfer to the Nokia Siemens Networks business.

This process will have no impact on the number of employees and will be carried out in accordance with local requirements, Nokia said.

Following the reorganisation, which is due to be completed by 1 November 2006, Nokia will have in place two separate corporate support platforms. One platform will be for its device businesses and the other for its networks business.

The platform supporting Nokia's networks business is expected to be made up of approximately 2,000 employees.

Those employees assigned to the new networks business support platform will transfer to Nokia Siemens Networks once the merger is closed, which is expected to take place by 1 January 2007.
