Future Boeing Plans

The Seattle Times said that the company plans to outsource about a third of the eliminated positions to Tata Consulting Services in Bengaluru, India.

Senior director of communications, Mike Friedman said, “Over time, some of our corporate functions have grown quite large. And with that growth tends to come bureaucracy or disparate systems that are inefficient. So we’re streamlining.”

The Times reported that 1,500 of the company’s 5,800 finance positions will be cut with more than 400 job cuts in Human Resources.
