CDW Layoffs: 5 Things To Know
Wade Tyler Millward
CDW has cut employees who were with the company for more than 10 years and multiple employees involved with Digital Velocity and Microsoft Azure.
Not CDW’s First Layoff
CDW previously conducted layoffs in September 2020, according to a Crain’s article from the time.
CDW cut 2 percent of its workforce at the time, according to Crain’s. With 7,600 employees in the U.S. and 9,900 workers worldwide, the number of employees cut was likely between 150 and 200 people.
However, the 2020 layoff came during tech’s boomtime of customer purchasing at the height of the pandemic.
Preceding the cut, CDW saw sales drop 6 percent year over year in the second quarter, according to Crain’s. Profit dropped 4 percent, corporate sales 17 percent and small business sales 20 percent. U.S. personal computer sales had risen that quarter by 3.5 percent.
