Arbitron Announces Layoffs

Our newest corporate nameplate, Arbitron, which recently announced plans to move to Columbia, is laying off 10 percent of its workforce because of the slowdown in the economy, according to this Sun story.

Under the plan, 110 full-time positions, including 80 in the Baltimore area, would be eliminated, company spokesman Thom Mocarsky said in phone interview.

About 71percent, or 767, of the company's 1,084 full-time employees work in Columbia, where the company moved its headquarters this month. About 56 percent, or 269, of the company's 484 part-time workers work at the 275,000-square-foot campus.
