Posted by at 1:39 pm on October 20, 2014

Sprint recently disclosed another round of job cuts, this time impacting its Kansas City headquarters.

The firm said it reduced its headcount by 452 people, mostly in the IT and administration aspect of the company. The cuts are in addition to workforce reductions the company put in place earlier this year. Sprint’s headcount is now fewer than 33,000. It ended 2013 with 38,000 employees. Job cuts impacting the company’s Kansas City operations number more than 900 as Sprint seeks to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

The company said more cuts are on the way, but most of them should be acted upon by the end of the month. Sprint appointed a new CEO, Marcelo Claure, in August. Claure has stepped up efforts to streamline the company’s operations.
