Employee Data

The total number of employees in the Sony Group as of March 31, 2016 was 125,300, a decrease of approximately 6,400 employees from March 31, 2015. During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, while employees of the Pictures, Music, and Financial Services segments increased, the total number of employees decreased due to production adjustments implemented at manufacturing sites in East Asia (excluding Japan) and restructuring initiatives taken mainly in the Mobile business.

Sony Corporation's workforce peaked at 23,000 in 1993, and in ensuring years it has generally remained fairly consistent at approximately 17,000. As of March 31, 2016, due to business restructuring initiatives taken and the sequential splitting out of business units, the number of employees at Sony Corporation was approximately 10,500.
