Diebold shifts 200 jobs to India
But the ATM company says it will fulfill its job commitment at its new headquarters in Green
by WKSU's M.L. SCHULTZE

In The Region:

Diebold is confirming that it is consolidating 200 I.T. jobs to India, but won’t say how many of those will be coming from Northeast Ohio. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more.

Diebold already has a software center in Hyderabad, India. It employs about 70 people. And spokesman Mike Jacobsen says the company, which makes ATMs and security systems, needs to take advantage of the expertise developed there for a specialized software.

“Hyderabad is considered the center of excellence for Oracle expertise. We’ve been trying to build up our resources and our expertise here, we’ve been trying to implement Oracle globally for our company for the last 10 years, and we’ve tried several different issues and to this point none of them have achieved the results that we’ve needed. “

Jacobsen says Diebold will transfer jobs from its global operations, not just Ohio. And he insists it will do nothing to curtail plans to employ at least 1,500 people  at the $100 million headquarters  Diebold is building of Interstate 77 near the Akron Canton airport.  He says local employees who lose their work to India will be able to apply for some 180 job postings the company now has open.
