in brief Enterprise asset management specialist Mincom has made some of its Australian and North American employees redundant in a realignment to its managed services division.
Less than 2 per cent of the Australian and North American
workforce had been shown the door, according to a spokesperson for
the company, who declined to specify numbers. The company has 1200
employees in 13 countries.
Australian Mincom employees had already been
hit in April this year when 50 roles were cut, but the
spokesperson insisted that Mincom would continue to maintain the
"great majority" of its technical resources at the corporate
headquarters in Brisbane.
While Australian and North American staffing levels took falls,
the company has hired people in Malaysia, the spokesperson said, creating
over 50 new jobs. The move to an in-house office in Malaysia
followed the decision to stop outsourcing over 100 roles to a third
party in India due to employee churn. The work outsourced to the external
providers in India was transferred to the Malaysian office.
