OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (KMBC) — Sprint notified its employees on Friday that layoffs will happen company-wide during the first half of 2014.

The exact timing and number of layoffs were not immediately known.

"The extent of the reductions are still being determined," Sprint spokeswoman Melinda Tiemeyer said in a statement Friday afternoon.

"The reductions come as the result of greater efficiencies that we've achieved through simpler pricing plans and improved customer service, changing marketplace dynamics and changes in the product and services sold primarily to business customers," the statement said.

Management and non-management positions will be affected, according to Tiemeyer.

Assistance will be provided to affected employees through a company plan, the statement also said.
