HP considers 25,000 job cuts

HP considers 25,000 job cuts

May 18, 2012

Cuts includes between 10,000 to 15,000 in enterprise services group, from a global workforce of 324,600.

HP is said to be contemplating substantial job cuts, with as many as 25,000 jobs to be considered, in a bid to cope with diminishing demand for computers and services, reports Bloomberg.

This follows hints of mass layoffs from HP CEO Meg Whitman herself earlier in May, according to CRN, during a visit to China. Whitman also made similar statements during a post-earnings conference call in February, stating that HP need to “save to invest” and “save to grow”, notes Forbes.

The jobs considered represent eight percent of HP’s global workforce, which currently stands at 324,600. As much as 10,000 to 15,000 jobs in HP’s enterprise services group are included, which Bloomberg sources claim is due to declining profitability.

Brian Marshall, an analyst at ISI Group, estimated that eliminating 18,000 jobs could result in savings of approximately $1.2 billion (€948 million) and add 50 cents (39 eurocents) to annual per-share earning.

“Hewlett Packard could make the difficult decision of announcing [a workforce reduction],” Marshall stated, which “would enable investments in strategic, higher growth areas.”

Sources to Bloomberg and Forbes have requested anonymity, as the plans “aren’t final and may change”.

HP has declined to comment.
