Tulsa Employees Unsure Of Hewlett-Packard Job Cut Impact

TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa employees of Hewlett-Packard are unsure if the company's job cuts will affect them.

HP announced Tuesday it will shed up to 30,000 jobs as part of a cost-cutting move to spin off the firm's personal computer and printing operations.

HP has not said how many of those cuts will be at its Tulsa Enterprise Service hub at 4000 North Mingo Road. The company says its Tulsa operations focus on software, consulting and data analysis. The company previously had said its Tulsa operations employs about 800 workers.

The spinoff is scheduled to be completed by the end of October. 

CEO Meg Whitman says splitting HP is a way to breathe new life into two companies that will be better suited to innovate in their own product areas and take care of their customers.

HP Enterprise focuses primarily on businesses and government agencies, while the PC and printing divisions depend on the consumer market for a significant chunk of their revenue.

"Hewlett Packard Enterprise will be smaller and more focused than HP is today," Whitman promised in a statement.

Despite the upheaval, HP remains one of the world's biggest technology companies. HP Enterprise expects to have more than $50 billion in annual revenue.
