HP on Monday announced plans to separate its major business lines into two separate companies. One, HP Inc., will offer PCs and printers; the other, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, will focus on IT infrastructure, software and services. HP CEO Meg Whitman will be the president and CEO of HP Enterprise, which will be chaired by Patricia Russo. Don Weisler, EVP of HP's printing & personal systems division, will be the president and CEO of HP Inc., and Whitman will be the non-executive chairman of its board.

This leaves me perplexed more then the Dell privatization. Other then a excuse to jettison employee's to save money. I don't see any advantage product wise by splitting the two. I agree with the analysts who say HP is grasping at straws and have been for some time. Yes, they do need to shrink as in product line in PC's and printers and also focus on Enterprise. But why this could not be done as one unit is a big question.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
