Freed-Hardeman reorganizes, lays off 18

HENDERSON, Tenn. — Freed-Hardeman University has laid off 18 employees and created five new positions as part of a reorganization by President Joe Wiley, who took office in April 2008.
“This decision is not a reflection of the work of these FHU employees but rather a decision to make Freed-Hardeman University more efficient,” Wiley said.
Some staff members whose positions were eliminated have been offered reassignment to existing or new positions.
Employees not receiving reassignment will receive severance compensation packages, the university said. Some employees will complete their contracts, while others were separated from Freed-Hardeman immediately.
Many of the shifts relate to a reorganization of recruiting efforts as the university creates a “one-stop shop” for prospective students. All things necessary for a prospect to become a student at FHU will be located and operated in one place. Now, a student must go to four or five buildings around campus, officials said.
