Hewlett Packard Enterprise could cut 5,000 staff worldwide - reports
12:37 Friday 22nd of September 2017

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is understood to be planning to cut 10% of its staff, or at least 5,000 workers, from its global workforce of 50,000 people.

The reductions are expected to start before the end of the year and will impact workers based in the US and overseas, according to technology website Silicon Republic. 

Hewlett Packard Enterprise employs 2,000 people in Ireland.

In 2015, HP split into two companies, HP Inc and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), to better compete in a rapidly changing technology market.

Earlier this year, in February, workers at HP Inc in Leixlip received the devastating news that the global print business in Co Kildare was going to close its inkjet facilities with the loss of 500 jobs.
