VMware Confirms Two Layoff Rounds In 2020
In August, VMware told CRN that it was laying off an undisclosed number of employees, including Shawn Toldo, vice president of VMware’s Worldwide Partner Organization.
VMware declined to provide the specific number of employees being laid off or which business groups or geographies would be impacted, saying the layoffs were part of “a regular workforce rebalancing as we realign recourses and investments to opportunities at scale.”
The August layoffs marked the second time VMware confirmed it was letting people go in 2020.
In January, VMware confirmed that the virtualization superstar was laying off an unspecified number of employees as part of its “workforce rebalancing” aimed at ensuring resources across its global businesses and geographies were aligned to customers and objectives.
