Was told 10% work force budget cut across HP and CW's.

Only 10. Should be 50 or so percent.
Someone was asking about the 60-day rule. Here’s how it works. You’re usually given 2 weeks WFR notice before your final employment date. AFTER your last day of employment at HP you have 60 days to get rehired by applying for posted jobs thru HP’s employment website. If you don’t get rehired within the 60-day window, then you are permanently blocked from getting rehired by HP again. It’s a brutal company rule, and I know this from having had this explained directly by HR. I’m not aware of any other large company that bans someone from being rehired with a rule like this.
The OP would not say what business unit this is, or anything else. Considering the upbeat propaganda we are getting from our L2 and the fact that the 2nd CW furlough is a month away, any WFR talk is pure scare mongering if not an outright trolling at this point.
"No tactics needed; its called WFR. "
I thought we would be given 60 days to look for another job internally? Does anyone know if that is still on the table, or will the notices be effective the same day?
No tactics needed; its called WFR. Many tech companies are either freezing their hiring or laying off workers, HP is be no exception.
I am not seeing "official" layoffs yet, but many key people have left abruptly. Does anyone know what tactics HPQ uses to force people leave like this? Meaning: no prior notice, no farewell cards, no nothing after years of service.
Tech sectors are having massive layoff now, while hpq has been laying off even when tech is growing. So if you think the rest of tech is facing layoff, hpq would laying off even more during this time.
What is their business unit? Your initial post made it seem like companywide. I could buy 10% of certain business units.
Spouse is current I am former HP. So, community service.....
Was told for their business unit only. No other info.
Just another post on this website about their "spouse" making posts on their behalf... but whatever.
Haven't heard of any plans to layoff anyone. There are other methods of conserving budget. If there are layoffs, then it's likely they are targeting dead weight where investment into those resources no longer have value to the organizational strategy. Examples of this could be the hundreds of "gaming accessory" teams that spawn out of nowhere... Teehee... Pavilion Gaming makes me laugh...
Are FTE employees still given 60 days to look for another internal job in case of a WFR?
Oops! Across the board?
