Hewlett Packard Does a Dilbert Forces IT Workers Back into Offices

To the shock and dismay of employees, Hewlett-Packard Co. of San Jose, California, is eliminating flexible work arrangements for its IT workers citing increased efficiency of having them work in offices, especially among work teams.

HP said its reported 1,000 IT workers around the globe will have until August to begin working "in one of 25 designated offices" for most of the workweek, a decision that could force many longtime HP technical workers to either relocate or seek news jobs, according to The San Jose-Mercury News.

HR experts consider the move surprising since HP is often credited with pioneering the concept of flexible work about 40 years ago.
