Federal Way-based World Vision has informed 32 employees they are being laid off in an effort to “streamline marketing and communications processes.”

A statement from the Christian humanitarian organization Friday said the cuts are the result of a recently completed “marketing effectiveness analysis.”

Some of the workers will be able to remain with the charity in other positions, said Cynthia Colin, World Vision spokeswoman.

In addition to the 32 layoffs, some positions that have become vacant in the past year have been left unfilled.

“The net result will be more resources going to the children and communities we serve around the world,” said the statement from the charity, which was founded in 1950 and is working in nearly 100 countries.

A small number of jobs in “key investment areas” are being added, Colin said.

She said laid-off employees will be provided severance packages and help in job searches. World Vision has 1,104 full-time and part-time employees.
