Hewlett Packard to Cut Up to 30,000 Jobs from Enterprise Spinoff

Posted by at 4:26 pm on September 15, 2015

HP LogoHewlett Packard said Tuesday afternoon that 25,000 to 30,000 people will leave the enterprise division as part of a planned spinoff.

The cuts, meant to cut $2.7 billion in annual costs, represent about 10% of the company’s total workforce of 302,000 employees.

Meg Whitman, HP CEO, is becoming CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a company focused on software and services for corporate clients. It will trade under the ticker symbol HPE.

The split is expected to be made final on Nov. 1.

The employee departures will save $2 billion annually, the company said.

HP Inc. will remain focused on printers and PCs.

“Hewlett Packard Enterprise will be smaller and more focused than HP is today,” Whitman said in a statement.

“As a separate company, we are better positioned than ever to meet the evolving needs of our customers around the world,” she said.

Whitman said the move would eliminate the need for future restructuring by enabling “a more competitive, sustainable cost structure for the new Hewlett Packard Enterprise.”
