Number of HP Job Cuts increases to 29,000

US computer giant Hewlett-Packard (HP) said on last week its job cuts under a major restructuring programme will total some 29,000 between now and October 2014. This is about 2,000 more jobs than previously announced.

Last month, HP posted the largest loss in its 73-year history. It’s been hit by the shift in technology spending from PCs and printers towards cellphones and tablets. The company also says it expects to record charges of $3.7 billion, mainly for the job cuts. That’s up from the May estimate of $3.5 billion.

The job cuts are “designed to simplify business processes, accelerate innovation and deliver better results for customers, employees and stockholders,” HP said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

The world’s biggest maker of personal computers said the cuts will be made through its 2014 fiscal year, with “a portion of those employees exiting” accepting a buyout, or “enhanced early retirement”.

HP chairman and chief executive Meg Whitman Whitman, who is trying to to turn the company around, said in last August that the workforce reduction was proceeding faster than expected, with 4,000 departures in the first three months and the number expected to hit 11,500 by the end of October.
