Voluntary severance packages find a lot of takers in the company’s imaging and printing division.

The packages, part of a restructuring process announced by the company in 2004, were only offered within the one division of the company. Age was not a factor in determining the offers.

A spokesperson for the Palo Alto-based firm said the response to the offer reduces the need for further job cuts in imaging and printing.

US based employees took the majority of the packages, while a few hundred takers were in the company’s Puerto Rico operations.

The number of packages offered and the contents of those packages were not disclosed to the media.
