Sprint Job Reductions Will Include 452 at Kansas Headquarters

Sprint Corp. said its previously announced job cuts will include 452 positions in Overland Park, Kansas, where the company is headquartered, according to a filing yesterday with the Kansas Department of Commerce.

Sprint is eliminating an unspecified number of jobs as its new chief executive officer, Marcelo Claure, attempts to create a leaner business amid heightened price competition. The company said in an Oct. 3 regulatory filing that the workforce reduction will result in a $160 million expense for severance and other costs in the fiscal second quarter.
