A total of around 6,650 employees will be made redundant at Dell as a result of the falling demand for personal computers.
It is anticipated that approximately 5% of the company’s personnel around the world will be affected by the job cuts.
According to a memo written by the company’s co-chief operating officer, Jeff Clarke, the business was facing challenging market conditions and an unclear future, and the company’s previous cost-cutting initiatives were no longer sufficient.
After the pandemic hit in 2020, Dell, which has its headquarters in Round Rock, Texas, made a similar announcement regarding layoffs.
A firm representative stated that the recent departmental reorganizations and staff losses provide a chance to enhance operational efficacy.
“We constantly analyze operations to make sure the appropriate structure is in place so that we can offer the highest possible value and assistance to our partners and customers,”
According to a spokeswoman for Dell, speaking with the BBC, “this is part of our ordinary course of business.”
According to a report that was released on Thursday, the number of people who lost their jobs in the United States reached its highest level in more than two years in January. This happened at the same time that the technology industry, which used to be a reliable source of jobs, cut jobs at the second-fastest rate on record to get ready for a possible recession.
Companies such as Google, Amazon, and Meta are currently grappling with the question of how to strike a balance between the need to reduce costs in order to remain competitive and the need to reduce costs in order to reduce costs. This comes after the pandemic caused consumer and corporate spending to decrease in response to high inflation and rising interest rates.
Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive officer of Facebook, described recent layoffs as “the most difficult adjustments we’ve made in Meta’s history,” while in October, after multibillionaire Elon Musk assumed control of the company, Twitter laid off over half of its workforce.
