Thread regarding Unisys Corp. layoffs

Hewlett Packard Enterprise cancelling Unisys contract

It was announced the contract with Unisys is being cancelled and Hemmersbach is taking over the HPE business. Not sure if this will mean layoffs or if everyone will be offered a job by Hemm. Target for this is Dec 1

I transitioned to hemmersbach back in November and it has been a mess. Apparently they have been loosing money or something. They recently introduced a bunch of bs rules about how to clock the hours you work. Basically, the rules make it impossible to get any overtime but they still expect you to be available.

I have not been paid any of my overtime for the past 2 pay periods. Yessenia from payroll does not even reply to emails and the boss hasnt been much help other then say to talk to her. This company sucks, I would recommend everyone to stay away, there is literally no future here. I wouldn't be surprised if they get a class action lawsuit over this bu-----t.

The launch on the Hemmersbach side was so chaotic and wasteful that they've already begun mass layoffs for technicians across the HPE project. I was hired mid November, completed training a week ago, and was laid off today. Yesenia, from HR, noted a low ticket volume leading to a reduction in workforce.

I went from hpe to Unisys and it was bad, but not compared to the Unisys to hemmersbach transition. yes it's only been 2 weeks but I swear hemmersbach is not ready for Primetime in the United States. Nothing works right. NOTHING. No one knows anything and nobody at all ca. answer a question. It is an absolute clown show, about half our Workforce went back to hpe because they were site residents, or part of a special account, and they tell me it's not much better over there. Neither side hired enough people to do the work in the area I'm in. And the new FEs Hemmersbach has hired? Ooo-eeee! Green as grass with no Enterprise experience...

Unisys claims to care about ethics and its associates.The employment ended for many november 29,a sunday.for those going to Hemmersbach the new health insurance didnt kick in until dec 1.Unisys refused to extend health benefits to those affected for 2 days leaving all at risk.But Unisys did say wonderful thing about how special we were during the pandemic,servicing all their customers .Yet they offered,not a dime extra to anyone for that effort.Thanks Unisys

HPE is cancelling the Contract with Unisys due to “Inability to retain the workforce “ which means everybody quit. Also because Unisys is using outdated tools to analyze field service performance.

In regards to the HPE contract I heard that HPE did not like the transactional model that Unisys followed. Hemmersbach uses the "Own it from beginning to end" approach. Hemmersbach had the HPE contract in Europe. While Unisys had the contract for North and South America. HPE likes the way that Hemmersbach does business better than the way that Unisys conducts business.

Unisys did not lose the Lexmark contract. Unisys cancelled the Lexmark contract.

Gee I wonder why. It's only been a disaster since day 1. Both companies didn't know what they were getting themselves into. Hopefully Hemmersbach will be a better fit.

I'd be curious to know what was the straw that finally broke the camel's back. Lots of accusations fired both ways throughout the past 3 years. Hopefully everyone stays employed somewhere. This is on top of losing Lexmark as well.
