(Reuters) - Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co is planning to cut at least 5,000 workers as part of a broader effort to reduce costs amid mounting competition, Bloomberg reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The reductions of about 10 percent of the company's total workforce of 50,000 are expected to start before the end of the year, Bloomberg reported. (bloom.bg/2xiAgYx)
