Over the past few weeks, Time Warner Cable has laid off employees from its national division as part of an ongoing plan to reorganize its divisions.

While Time Warner Cable was rumored to have trimmed its national division by 41 employees, Time Warner Cable spokesman Justin Venech wouldn’t say how many employees were laid off.

“There were layoffs in our national division, and they were the result of our regionalization efforts that have been going on,” Venech said. “As a result of that regionalization, there were some layoffs, none of which were in customer-facing areas like call centers or technicians. Where we used to focus on individual divisions, we’re now focusing on stronger regional organization.”

Venech said Kansas City, Mo., became part of the national division a few weeks ago, while Lincoln, Neb., made the transition earlier this year.

Time Warner Cable has six divisions. Earlier this year, Time Warner Cable combined the Raliegh and Wilmington divisions in North Carolina. Last year, Austin and Waco in Texas became one division, as did Green Bay and Milwaukee in Wisconsin. Time Warner Cable also combined its Syracuse and Binghamton divisions in New York.

“This isn’t something new. It’s something that has been happening steadily,” Venech said. “As our operational executives see fit, it will continue where necessary.”
