Akron, Ohio -- ACS and The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company today announced that they have signed a 10-year agreement for human resources (HR) services.
Under terms of the contract, ACS will provide a wide range of HR business process services for Goodyear's Akron-based North American operations. Approximately 100 HR positions in Akron have transferred to ACS as part of the agreement.
ACS' technological and operational expertise are expected to provide Goodyear--and its 40,000 North American associates--human resources services and support. ACS will institute a major technology upgrade for Goodyear's HR information system.
Kathleen T. Geier, Goodyear Senior Vice Ppresident of Human Resources, anticipates savings of approximately $45 million resulting from the Goodyear's 10-year partnership with ACS as Goodyear HR transforms to a world- class shared services organization.
