Dell reveals job cuts in filing – Report


Enterprise IT vendor Dell has cut 10,000 jobs globally in the past fiscal year, Austin Business Journal reported Thursday, citing a regulatory filing.

The report also said the company officials declined to reveal details on the layoffs.  Dell disclosed the the job cuts in a 331-page regulatory filing completed Monday by Denali Holding Inc., Dell’s ownership holding company.

“At the end of fiscal 2015, Dell had approximately 98,300 total full-time employees, compared to approximately 108,300 total full-time employees at the end of fiscal 2014,” Austin Business Journal quoted from Dell’s filing  with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Dell spokesman David Frink told Austin Business Journal that the job cuts were done to streamline operations and improve the company’s efficiency.

“We’ve made a number of tough decisions, including workforce reductions,” he said. “As I’ve said on previous occasions, to protect the privacy of affected team members, we don’t comment on the number of reductions, or specifics within individual Dell businesses or sites.”
