By Laura O’ConnorPublished May 05, 2019 09:18:17Purdue has announced a new product line that promises to improve the company’s human resources team.
The Purdue HR team will focus on bringing more people into the company, which will create more opportunities for growth and innovation, and improve communication.
The company says the HR team is a new, highly qualified team that “will help to better align Purdue’s human resource strategy with the needs of our customers.”
It’s not clear how long this line will be in place, but Purdue has previously said it’s aiming to have its HR team up to five people.
In addition, Purdue says it will improve its communication with its customer service reps.
“We want to be able to reach our customers with more insight into how we are doing, how we’re building, and how we can improve,” the company says.
Purdue says this will include more frequent and better-quality communication between employees and customers.
“I want to make sure our team is constantly engaged with our customers to provide them with the most accurate information possible,” Purdue CEO and cofounder Peter Daugherty said in a statement.
The new line will add more than 1,000 jobs, including 200 full-time positions, and a number of contract and contract-partner positions.
It’s unclear how much revenue the new line is expected to generate for Purdue.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The PurdueHR line comes as the company faces a new round of scrutiny.
In February, the Wall Street Journal reported that Purdue had fired a senior manager and that it was looking to replace him.
The Journal also said Purdue was in talks to buy a company called Tango, which it owns.
