HP Continues Its Global Restructuring

As reported by Tulsa World and EDP, Hewlett Packard (HP) continues to work on its global restructuring by creating 65 new roles in Tulsa, Oklahoma (in the USA) and planning to cut jobs in Norwich and Cambridge (in the UK).

According to Tulsa World, HP will add 65 higher-income positions at two of its data centers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with an average wage of $65,000 per year. Most of the new jobs at the center will be filled by highly-skilled computer engineers, including database and storage administrators and mainframe programmers.

Wes Mitchell, Director of Data Center Services for HP Enterprise Services (ES), revealed that the company has about 800 employees in Tulsa at its two data storage centers. In a recent statement, Mitchell observed, “These jobs represent ES’s continued commitment to Tulsa and technology innovation and transportation.”

Meanwhile, EDP reported that as part of its global restructuring, HP plans to shed 30 positions in Norwich and Cambridge.
In a statement, HP said, “The proposed UK workforce management plan is part of HP’s global multi-year productivity initiative that was announced on May 23, 2012 to address current market and business pressures in support of HP’s turnaround in EMEA.”

A spokesman for Hewlett Packard, which employs about 600 people across Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, said the number of redundancies may reduce if staff members take new roles within the business.

“HP remains committed to supporting the employability of its employees through a number of internal initiatives, including re-skilling, redeployment and support to obtain alternative employment as appropriate,” he added.
