Xerox's outsourcing one year later: layoffs

dcblogs (1096431) writes "About a year ago, Xerox told some 600 employees, many of them product engineers, that their jobs were being transferred to an India-based IT services firm, HCL Technologies. How has that worked out? A Xerox employee who was transferred, and who is part of a Xerox IT group of 150 people (a subset of the overall larger number of those transferred.), says his group is now down to about 50 who work on the Xerox account. About 30 have been laid off; 20 recently, and 10 some months earlier. The others who aren't working on the Xerox account have been moved to other projects or left through attrition. Xerox's CEO, Ursula Burns, is playing a prominent advisory role in the Obama administration as the vice chair of the President's Export Council as well as serving on the President's Jobs Council. In 2011, Xerox employed 139,700 globally, and 80,500 in the U.S. Xerox's workforce at the end of the first quarter of this year was 138,300 globally, with 78,600 in the U.S."
