Ncr To Eliminate Nearly 1,000 Jobs

Thu., Oct. 16, 1997

NCR Corp. will eliminate about 1,000 jobs as it gives its business units responsibility for sales as well as production to make them clearly responsible for their own profits and losses.

The Dayton-based computer maker had not yet determined how much money it might save because of the change. Sales had been handled by a separate unit.

The 1,000 jobs, many of which are staff support positions, amount to about 2.5 percent of NCR’s 38,500 employees. The job losses will be spread among NCR’s operations in 130 countries, company spokesman Bob Farkas said.
