Acx­iom trims jobs as it re­aligns fo­cus

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM - — David Smith

Con­way-based Acx­iom Corp. elim­i­nated sev­eral em­ployee po­si­tions Mon­day and Tues­day, a com­pany spokesman said.

“A very small num­ber of Acx­iom em­ploy­ees, less than 1 per­cent of the to­tal world­wide work­force, was af­fected and in­formed [Mon­day and Tues­day],” spokesman Sherry Hamil­ton said in an email late Tues­day.

Acx­iom has 3,260 em­ploy­ees world­wide, ac­cord­ing to its an­nual re­port filed in May. One per­cent of that num­ber is 33 em­ploy­ees.

The com­pany “has re­aligned some teams to bet­ter pri­or­i­tize and de­ploy key re­sources to our most im­por­tant client-re­lated pur­suits, ini­tia­tives and ac­tiv­i­ties,” Hamil­ton said in the email.

The com­pany re­ported no other in­for­ma­tion about the job losses.

Acx­iom shares fell 54 cent, or 2.3 per­cent, to close Wed­nes­day at $23.08.
