Medtronic (NYSE: MDT) spokesman Brian Henry said the medical device maker eliminated a total of 2,100 jobs worldwide, and it began notifying employees of the layoffs this week. He said some employees accepted early retirement packages.

Henry said the layoffs were across all divisions and job functions.
