Computer maker HP Inc. said Tuesday that it plans to chop 4,000 to six,000 employees over the subsequent three years. Shares rose as much as 1% in prolonged trading following the announcement.

HP is the newest technology company to announce its intent to slim down given economic challenges. Facebook parent Meta, Microsoft and Salesforce are amongst people who have made similar changes. HP, for its part, is responding to a deterioration in computer sales. At first the Covid pandemic brought a PC buying frenzy as people rushed to work and play from their homes. However the sensational growth didn’t delay.
