London--PricewaterhouseCoopers L.L.P., the world's largest consulting firm, has offered severance packages to 200 of its U.K. consultants and expects them to leave by January. The consultants offered the severance packages were either underperforming or lacking electronic-commerce skills, according to The Financial Times. PricewaterhouseCoopers will recruit 200 new consultants with e-commerce skills to replace the departing consultants. About 15% of PricewaterhouseCooper's $15 billion in annual revenues comes from b-to-b and business-to-consumer e-commerce consulting fees, a percentage the firm expects to increase markedly in the coming years.
