HP NZ to lay off staff?

It's quite possible some jobs could go, says HP spokesman

Jobs are on the line at Hewlett-Packard New Zealand as a result of the company restructuring.

Computerworld was told last week that at least five positions had been disestablished. But company spokesman Jeff Healey says no one has gone — yet.

“We’re aligning resources to the market,” he says. “We’re looking at the business model.” The company was in discussions with employees “to align with the global model”.

The law requires such consultation before any employee is laid off. Pressed further, Healey responded: “It’s quite possible some jobs could go.”

In July last year, Hewlett-Packard said it was laying off 14,500 employees globally.
