Kaiser Permanente is cutting about 100 jobs from its 5,600 information technology workforce. The layoffs, representing about 2% of IT employees, will occur across the organization and primarily in California.
The cuts have been in the works for some time and are "based on the changing technology needs of the organization," according to a written statement.
The Oakland, Calif.-based managed-care giant is attempting to match affected employees with open positions. Those laid off will have access to a human resources firm to help them find new jobs, according to Kaiser.
