Cisco offers some employees early retirement

Cisco Systems began offering early retirement buyouts to some U.S. and Canadian employees this week, the latest cost-cutting effort by the technology company.

Cisco didn't disclose details of the program, including how many people will get an offer, or how many the company hopes will take it.
