The layoffs, which will affect its corporate employees, amounts to less than 1 per cent of its more than 110,000 employees, the company said Tuesday.

Bonuses go to those who make PepsiCo's snacks and drinks, and those who deliver them.

Like other major corporations this year, PepsiCo is citing a major overhaul of the nation's tax code for the bonuses. It did not say how many workers would receive them, or what the criteria is for the size of the bonus.

The company will also use its tax savings to bump its annual dividend by 15 per cent and increase its share buyback program to $15 billion, from $12 billion.
