Every time there’s a report of job losses at Dealer.com, the Burlington software company that was sold to Cox Automotive in 2016, Chintan Talati finds himself reassuring Vermonters that the company plans to stay where it is.
“The one thing I have continued to reiterate is that we are 100 percent committed to Burlington,” said Talati, Cox public relations director
The company is a major employer in Vermont, with about 1,000 workers and a headquarters near downtown Burlington. Local media sporadically report layoffs at the company, most recently Oct. 23 when fewer than a dozen jobs were eliminated, according to Seven Days.
Talaii said the most recent job loss will be followed by some hiring that results in a net increase in employment at Dealer.com’s offices in Burlington.
He said he doesn’t know of any more layoffs planned in the future.
