Procter & Gamble is cutting an undisclosed number of customer service jobs in Cincinnati starting in October, company officials said Wednesday.
The work they perform will be picked up by new employees hired at offices in San Jose, Costa Rica.
“During this transition period, our key priorities will remain focused on continuing to deliver the business with excellence while also fully supporting our employees,” said spokeswoman Marie-Laure Salvado.
Affected local employees will have opportunities to apply for other jobs in P&G. The company expects the transition to be complete by mid 2015.
P&G has cut 7,000 non-manufacturing jobs since February 2012 as part of a $10 billion restructuring plan running through 2016. The company currently employs about 121,000 worldwide and about 12,000 in the region.
