Hewlett Packard Renders Hundreds Jobless

It has been recently revealed that Hewlett Packard has recently gone on its job slashing spree and in the same wake, there have been as many as 275 staff members who have lost their jobs. They have been particularly slashing jobs from their webOS profile and this has rendered many people jobless already and many others are at a risk of losing their jobs in the time to come.

In the month of September last year, there had been as many as 500 people who lost their jobs, after the company called it quits for the Touchpad Tablet of theirs. It was in January this year that their former Palm chief executive Mr. Jon Rubenstein quit from his position.

"HP is bringing the innovation of the webOS platform to the open source community. This is a decisive step toward meeting our goal of accelerating the platform's development and ensuring that its benefits will be delivered to the entire ecosystem of Web applications", said Bill Veghte, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer from HP. The firm is doing so in the wake of bringing out newer programs for the increase of further innovation of the brand.

There is need for a middle way to be found by the firm that helps the people who are losing their jobs as well. These people have been associated with the firm for a long time and simply asking them to leave shall have a very negative impact on their lives. It shall further tend to have a negative impact on the reputation of the firm. This makes it all the more important for them to look for good recruitment options for these people. It remains to be seen what sort of effect these proceedings have.
