Asustek to eliminate 300 jobs in second half of '12

TAIPEI--Taiwanese PC vendor Asustek Computer Inc. is allegedly in the process of laying off about 300 employees, despite the company reporting a new earnings per share high for 2011, according to a report published yesterday by local media.

According to the report, the world's No. 5 PC vendor and No. 1 motherboard maker is planning to cut about 3 percent of its employees with poor performance reviews in the second half of the year.

The figure represents approximately 300 workers, while Asustek currently has a total of 10,000 full-time employees worldwide.

An Asustek spokesman, David Chang, corroborated the report but said the staff cuts are routine and aimed at strengthening the company's manpower.

Chang said that those facing the axe will be given a period of notice to improve before the decision is made to let them go.

He added that any vacancies opened by the dismissals will be filled, so that the number of full-time employees will remain unchanged.
