Allied Insurance is giving employees lots of notice about job cutbacks at its regional office in Lincoln.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that 140 jobs will be eliminated in claims and customer service between 2017 and 2020. That will slice the Lincoln workforce in half.
Eric Hardgrove is a spokesman for Nationwide Insurance, which owns Allied, and he says the company wanted to give employees plenty of time to find other jobs, either with Allied or Nationwide or elsewhere.
Hardgrove says the jobs will be eliminated by attrition as much as possible, and employees who don’t find other jobs will be offered severance.
He says the Lincoln jobs likely will be consolidated to either Des Moines, Iowa, where Allied is based, or Columbus, Ohio, where Nationwide is based.
