Unisys cuts staff

Unisys is cutting about 1,400 workers around the world as part of a money-saving drive.

Elizabeth Douglas, a spokesperson for the US-based IT services company says, “The reduction will be global to reflect the scope of our business: about half of all company revenues are in the US and half come from outside the US. At this point we don’t have any specific information about the local impact of the cuts.”

In a formal statement issued last week, Unisys said the planned staff reductions will mainly affect general and administrative roles. The company will also be consolidating some of its facilities. Unisys expects the exercise to deliver cost savings of some US$70 million annually from the end of 2005.

Overall, the cut represents almost 4% cut in the total international workforce of around 37,000. Unisys is not saying whether the planned reduction will involve forced lay-offs or attrition.

Unisys currently employs more than 700 staff in New Zealand. The company is headquartered in Wellington, has offices in Auckland and Christchurch and runs a data centre in Paraparaumu.
