Re: Future bet Cutting 10% of that large workforce is indeed a biig cut, and those affected will certainly be anxious about what's going on. I wonder if during and after the cuts though that lots of outsourcing may take the place for some of those jobs that wlll actually be found a necessity?

Re: Future bet The job cuts may also be because a shift in their strategy that impacts their human capital needs and their cost infrastructure until we know more there is no complete way to tell. It's always hard when employees are let go but sometimes its unavoidable.

Re: Future bet Good point about rising costs. I got a modest raise last year and it was gobbled up by increased insurance premiums. Premiums increased again this year. I can see how companies would rather pay overtime than for a whole other person...

Re: Future bet Job cuts a reality thoughout tech companies and other businesses. A lot of tech companies start with plenty of bodies, then cut as the business matures. Wages, healthcare and other benefits continue to become more costly (on a per-worker basis). For many companies, it's much less expensive to pay overtime than to pay for the health and other benefits for an additional worker.

Future bet Will this plan by HPE turn out to be a reorganization or will they really cut this many jobs? It's always a bit troubling when such a large company cuts so many wokers from its roster.

Re: Reinvention @daniel: It wasn't even smart so much as it was essential (and, to that end, Michael Dell deserves credit as the driving force behind taking the company private). Publicly traded companies are stymied in innovation and growth because of constantly having to appease investors quarter by quarter -- often at the expense of long-term strategy gains.

Re: Reinvention I feel like HPE is being pushed out by rivals. 

Have to say, it was pretty smart for Dell to go private and embark on the strategy they have. I can't imagine this wasn't without HPE in the company's mind.

Reinvention HPE is still evolving in a changing market for PCs and printers this year they introduced Printers as a service which I thought was an interesting value proposition. It has worked for me at reducing ink costs and the deliveries have been prompt --implementing these types of innovative ways of doing business can help to save them in the long term. Maybe PC as a service is next?
