Dell to Cut About 6,650 Jobs as PC Sales Plunge
Updated on

Dell Technologies Inc. is eliminating about 6,650 roles as it faces plummeting demand for personal computers, becoming the latest technology company to announce thousands of job cuts.

The reduction amounts to about 5% of Dell’s global workforce, the company said in a regulatory filing early Monday. Dell is experiencing market conditions that “continue to erode with an uncertain future,” Co-Chief Operating Officer Jeff Clarke wrote in memo viewed by Bloomberg. About one-third of Dell’s employees are US-based, according to a March 2022 filing.
