FARGO – Twenty-three Fargo employees of One America, formerly Pioneer Mutual Life Insurance, were told Tuesday that their jobs are being transferred to Indianapolis.
Affected employees were offered outplacement assistance and severance packages, said Paul Branks, assistant vice president for corporate communications, for One America Financial Partners Inc.
“We did have a group come out to Fargo to meet with the employees there and let them know that we were transferring operations for Pioneer Mutual Life to the Indianapolis home office. That will impact 23 positions,” Branks said.
A handful of employees will stay on for a period of time to help with the transition, Branks said.
A few positions in marketing and the wholesale division will stay in Fargo, he said.
“But the operation as it is set up now will be vastly different and will be mostly here in Indianapolis, other than those few positions,” he said.
Pioneer Mutual became a subsidiary of One America in 2002.
