Turning Technologies eliminates eight positions

Turning Technologies eliminated eight full-time employees this week as part of an internal restructuring effort that will help the company hire more employees in other departments.

Turning Chief Executive Mike Broderick said the move is not at all uncommon. He said the company needs to adjust to its growth, and the layoffs are no sign of downsizing.

Broderick did not specify exactly what positions were eliminated nor in what departments new employees would be added. But he said by the time new hires were made, there would be no net job loss at the company.

Turning makes software and hardware for interactive audience-response technology. The devices allow classrooms and seminars, for example, to poll audience members during quizzes and presentations.

Broderick said Turning, in the Taft Technology Center on West Federal Street, employs about 250 people in Youngstown and other parts of the country. He said six of the eight workers eliminated worked in Youngstown.

As the chief evangelist proudly proclaims, "Right here in downtown Youngstown (and other parts of the country)."

Makes one wonder how many of the 250 people are employed in other parts of the country.

Less than 10% of the 250 are in other parts of not only the country but the world. So, more than 200 people work in the Youngstown area.
