Sioux Falls sees more layoffs as Esurance cuts approximately 30 jobs

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - More Sioux Falls workers will lose their jobs after an insurance company eliminated 100 positions nationally this week.

Esurance said about 30 of its Sioux Falls associates will be let go. They will get severance packages, career transition services, and support from Human Resources.

Esurance said most of the affected associates' last day will be May 28.

The company released the following statement:

"Esurance announced changes to its organizational structure, including restructuring departments and redeploying work to different geographic regions and teams. The changes will ensure we’re structured appropriately with the right resources at the right scale, allowing us to focus on the customer experience and providing modern protection solutions. By reducing operational costs, our customers will continue receiving the competitive rates and savings they’ve come to expect from Esurance.

As a result of the reorganization, approximately 100 positions were eliminated nationally based on business needs. The impacted positions spanned most business units and those affected associates are receiving support and services to assist them in the transition."

Last week, around 100 people were affected by layoffs at the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society in Sioux Falls.
