PreCentral: HP ups layoffs count by two thousand; 29,000 positions gone by 2014

Recommended Posts

HP ups layoffs count by two thousand; 29,000 positions gone by 2014

In HP's seemingly unending quest to quell the bleeding, the company's employees have been in the firing line since May. Back then, CEO Meg Whitman announced that HP was looking to cut its 300,000-man workforce by 27,000. Today brought the news that another 2,000 positions are on the chopping block, as per a 10-K filing HP sent to the SEC. The new 29,000 total reduction count will reduce HP's workforce by over eight percent.

HP hopes that a portion of those employees will leave HP as part of a "voluntary enhanced early retirement" program in the U.S. Given the current economic and jobs climate, getting enough workers to voluntarily depart HP (even in spite of HP's ongoing issues) and lose their benefits like healthcare coverage to make a dent in the expected layoff count has and will continue to be an ongoing hurdle.

The restructuring plan and accompanying workforce reductions are expected to result in a total of $3.3 billion in accounting charges resulting from costs relating to the early retirement and severance packages from the layoffs. An additional $400 million in restructuring costs will come from consolidations in HP's real estate assets and data centers.

    • Question: ALL apps stopped working today on my OLED55C7

      Suddenly all apps stopped working today, Dec 25, 2018. No Netflix, no Amazon, no Dolby app, no LG content store, Nothing. I assumed it was a network issue, but the TV says the network is fine and this is proven by the fact that (1) the TV is correctly setting the date and time using a time server, and (2) I am able to access  network device in my home.  My home internet is working perfectly. I tried reinstalling the firmware. No go. The built in reinstall doesn't connect either. I down

    • [pivotCE]Open Source webOS now brought to you by LG

      Yo! We heard you like open sourced webOS so LG open sourced the open source of webOS! Ok, so that’s not entirely accurate since LG purchased the closed source webOS code from HP after they open sourced…well…bits and pieces of it back in 2012. So no, you’re not stuck in a Doctor Strange time loop. webOS has been open sourced before but not by LG.  This news comes as a shock to the current legacy webOS community still rocking Pre 3s and waiting for LuneOS to reach “driver” status.  The communi
