Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Technologies

Dell Technologies, headquartered in Round Rock, announced it will cut jobs this week to save on costs amid the economic climate of the pandemic.


Bloomberg reported that Dell Chief Operating Officer Jeff Clarke told staff that the reductions won't be limited to any particular team or division within the company. At the end of January, Dell had 165,000 employees—13,000 in the Austin area.

The announcement comes after the company suspended 401(k) matching, bonuses and promotions for the fiscal year.

Austonia has reached out to Dell for comment.
