Am I Next? Layoffs at Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Published reports by reputable business publications such as Bloomberg News suggest that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is prepared to layoff up to ten-percent of its worldwide workforce, approximately 5,000 workers in the immediate future. This is part of HPE’s continuing realignment and restructuring to find relevance in today’s cloud environment and to compete with the other large players in the IT services space. Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (HPE) was created on November 1, 2015 as part of splitting of the original Hewlett-Packard company. The company is headed by CEO Meg Whitman who still needs to prove to investors that HPE is a long-term play when measured against Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle, and others who are already in the cloud.
