Meanwhile, Internet company Yahoo is also hiring people for its research and development unit in the country after it announced last week that it is preparing to retrench between 600 and 700 employees ahead of a holiday trimming due to its lackluster growth.

The latest planned lay off was touted as Yahoo’s fourth mass retrenchment in last three years, representing about 5 percent of the company’s workforce of 14,100 employees.

This round of cutbacks is expected to be concentrated in the Internet company’s U.S products division.
