82 employees of the Small Business Contact Center and National Order Help Desk at CenturyLink on Lexington Avenue in Mansfield got some difficult news Tuesday. But their positions are not being eliminated, just transferred to Apopka, Florida and LaCrosse, Wisconsin. Ohio Market Development Manager Joanette Romero says this is being done to trim costs and help the company stay competitive. She says the 82 positions will be removed from Mansfield effective June sixth, and affected employees are encouraged to apply for the jobs in Florida and Wisconsin, or elsewhere in the company, which has offices in 37 states. The news was broken to the affected employees during a staff meeting. Romero says the employees were stunned and listened intently to their options. They will be offered severence packages if they choose not to take the out-of-state jobs. CenturyLink employees who take jobs in Wisconsin or Florida will be given assistance for moving expenses. Romero says these job transfers are not to be considered a sign of worse to come. She says the building, which will have 434 employees remaining, is not closing in its entirety.
