Iola media company reducing workforce, outsourcing jobs

IOLA, Wis. (WBAY) - An Iola business is eliminating dozens of positions as it outsources the jobs.

F + W Media is reducing its workforce by 41 positions at its Iola facility located at 715 East State Street. The company's human resources department announced that 20 of those jobs will be outsourced.

Employees will have the opportunity to interview with the outsourcer, R.R. Donnelley.

The departments impacted by this decision are Digital Asset Technologies, Production, Digital Imagining, Ad Services, and Ad Design.

The outsourcing transition is expected to be completed by Feb. 26.

The company says employees will be paid earned wages and agreed upon benefits.

In 2002, F+W Media acquired Krause Publications of Iola, which specialized in collectible and enthusiast publications, such as world coins and old cars.
