WESTLAKE, Ohio (WOIO) - Hyland Software, the Westlake-based company, will be laying off 1,000 employees while the company restructures its organization.

Monday’s announcement comes nearly two years after 150 jobs in Northeast Ohio were cut by the business in favor of overseas employment opportunities.

I have difficult news to share — news that is all the more challenging because, for the past 32 years, we have worked together to achieve extraordinary success and growth. In a company that is always changing, today we are announcing the hardest change we’ve ever had to make.

We are restructuring our organization. We are removing layers of management, adjusting team sizes and reassigning responsibilities across departments and levels. These changes will reduce the size of our team by about 1,000 employees, which is approximately 20% of our workforce.

I recognize and understand the gravity of this decision and the impact it will have on our friends and colleagues who will be leaving. I take responsibility for the decisions we are sharing today, and I realize how difficult this is for you all.

Bill Priemer, Hyland Software CEO
