Verizon has informed employees that it plans to reduce the number of regional offices around the country and correspondingly reduce headcount. The company has 20 regional locations, which it plans to pare down to just six. Verizon did not say which facilities will be closed nor how many jobs will be eliminated, but it indicated that retail employees will not be impacted. Verizon had approximately 178,000 employees at the end of the third quarter. The company is looking to reduce expenses as its business continues to transition away from landline services to wireless service. "We are constantly working to evolve our operations to best support our customers' changing needs," said Verizon in a statement provided to Fierce Wireless. Verizon didn't put a timeline on the office closures.
