Thread regarding DXC Technology layoffs

WFR in Germany coming next Tuesday and Wednesday

Just off the press: about 170 people will be receiving their termination letters next week in Germany in addition to the over 500 people that accepted the voluntary resignation program (in return for a severance payment).

It's been reported that workers council have been informed yesterday and started informing affected people, and the formal letters will be sent out Tuesday and Wednesday. In other reports news came up that company management played foul in the selection process on who has to go (social selection principle is mandated by German law) and have made up criteria in a way that mostly long-time, elderly employees will receive the pink slip next week...

I am one of the employees who received their termination letters on Sep, 30 here. I was being told the management was incapable of making a selection and they asked their lawyers to do the work. I worked at DXC for many years and to be honest, I am happy to go.. This company has no future, I am pretty much sure the next wave of WFR is coming soon.

Is the UK&I region going to be targeted in net round of WFR or is it just Germany?

Pink slips are delivered today, via courrier of a law firm.

Simple letter, almost no text, no reason, only the calculated date of last day.

The "managers" who created the mess especially in Germany are still in place and still talk about cost adjustment, while THEY led us into desaster. Simple question: Who signed those contracts where we make massive losses? Who agreed to "Moneyball" (HW paid for, sitting wrapped in the DCs and cannot be used)... Ahhh the new CEO of Gainwell... others still in Exec Level positions, unable to sell, unable to take accountability, just begging the workforce and managers not to talk to clients about internals. It's a shame. Real leaders behave differently. Time is up for you guys as well..

If anyone could explain why they are axing people who bring in business, are key players, and have a great work attitude, I'd be delighted.
And who is going to tell the clients that we will stop delivering?
And if that Hans guy helds one more happy go lucky townhall, I will drink a glass of vodka every time he mentions extramile. I will be drunk 10 minutes into the call.
If I would use swear words, I would do that now.

The strategy is chop staff, lower turnover, get more Accenture managers at the top to cream off shares, once all the customers and contracts have gone switch off the lights and the management retire in a nice resort. Adios bums we have a dream and your part of it till your made redundant.

@vfa+175Zz7SQ - yes very likely that WFR programs will reoccur in UK again - has been like this since CSC days and got worse under Lawrie leadership but thought SAL would reshape the company and WFR would reduce in frequency and the no's being let go - invaluable experienced and hard work staff that is extremely hard to replace
