HP to shed 133 jobs over two years | Print |  Email
Wednesday, 15 October 2008

Following the recent announcement that HP planned a 7.5% reduction in its global workforce, the US corporation has announced that it expects 133 jobs to be lost in Ireland. The job losses arise from the need to eliminate duplication following HP's acquisition of EDS. Some 400 Irish EDS became HP employees as a result of the takeover earlier this year.

While HP will be offering a severance package, according to a statement issued by the company, "HP will make every effort where possible to re-deploy impacted individuals". HP employs some 4,000 staff in Ireland with the majority in Leixlip, Co. Kildare and several hundred in Galway.
