NO LOVE AT HARTE HANKS (TEXARKANA)

 Am I Next? Harte Hanks Layoffs (Texarkana)

Harte Hanks, the Texas-based marketing services company has announced that they will layoff at least 460 employees at their Texarkana facility. The reduction in force is driven by a change in business circumstances, rumored to be the loss of FedEx, a major services client. According to Harte Hanks spokesperson Scott Hamilton, “We would expect we will continue to operate in Texarkana with 110 or so employees at lease for the time being but there are no plans to shut the facility down completely.” There should be no surprise that consumer contact call and processing centers utilize flexible staffing which depend on individual client contracts.
