Cedar Rapids Gazette: Cedar Rapids insurance and investment services company Transamerica filed a notice with Iowa Workforce Development saying it will eliminate 40 positions as of Aug. 15. The company began paring away at its Cedar Rapids employee count back in 2018 when it outsourced parts of its business to India-based Tata Consultancy Services. At that time it shifted 882 jobs to Tata. In November 2020 Transamerica cut the positions of 53 Cedar Rapids employees.
