DXC Technology expected to close multiple UK offices

Rumoured closures expected to be part of cost saving plans.

By James Nunns

DXC Technology is expected to close a number of its sites as part of its cost cutting plans.

The company, which is the offspring of the spin-merger of HPE’s Enterprise Services division and CSC, is said to be looking at reducing overheads by $1.6bn in the next three years.

One of the tactics it will deploy to make those savings is said to be closing offices. An insider told The Register that a memo to employees at the company’s site said:

“We propose to close the DXC Bracknell, Amen Corner site at the end of June 2017. The business and HR are engaged with the UK Works Council and Trade Unions and will continue to consult with them as appropriate through this change.

“Working with your business unit leadership, we are in the process of assessing a number of options to ensure a smooth transition plan for all employees, the main one being for employees to work from the DXC Aldershot, Royal Pavillion site.”

The memo is said to have received a mixed response from employees, with some pleased but others concerned at the upheaval it will cause to them personally.
