Some 20 workers laid off recently at ING offices in Connecticut was not related to a massive European job reduction that the Dutch financial group announced Wednesday, company officials said.
“This week we did make some small staffing adjustments in our Technology Services group,” said ING spokesman Joseph Loparco. “This involved about 20 Connecticut-based positions, and it’s part of our ongoing efforts to improve the operational efficiency of our U.S. businesses.”
ING employs more than 2,000 full-time workers in Connecticut, primarily in Windsor, though some work remotely from their homes. ING’s Connecticut workforce is predominantly support for the company’s retirement and investment management businesses, and a small number support the insurance business.
