Chuck House speculates that HP’s board was looking for a reason to force Hurd out:
The Voice of the Workplace, HP’s thirty-five year historic
‘measure’ of employee feelings (done every five years) showed in
April an astonishing finding — more than two-thirds of HP’s
employees would quit tomorrow if they had an equivalent job offer.
Not a raise, not a promotion, simply an alternative. That number
never used to be in double digits.
Hurd was, apparently, very unpopular with the HP rank-and-file.
