Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff extends an 'open hand' to laid-off IBM workers and asks for their resumes
After word went out last week that IBM continued its multi-year restructuring by handing pink slips to unknown number of workers, at least one person decided to try and help: Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.
As we previously reported, these employees were the first to be subject to IBM new policy that began in 2016 of reduced severance pay. Everyone let go from IBM from now will get one month's of severance no matter how long they worked at the company.IBM declined to comment to Business Insider about the number of employees affected last week (IBM doesn't discloss layoff information).
But it did tell us it is shedding workers in its some areas while hiring like crazy in its new, strategic growth areas, with 25,000 open positions.
