Dell is also reportedly in talks of announcing staff reductions as early as this week, but we are not yet hearing a consistent number. One source tells us that managers in various departments have been told to put together names of who should get a pink slip. Another posits that the marketing and communication departments, for example, could face up to a 25% reduction in team size.
The tech giant laid off 9% globally in 2020, and some suspect this round will be similarly sized. Per LinkedIn, Dell Technologies employs over 141,000 people.
