Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(b) On February 21, 2011, David B. Dillon, a director of Convergys Corporation (the “Company”), notified the Board of Directors (the “Board”) that he will not stand for reelection at the 2011 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”). Mr. Dillon stated to the Board that he is leaving the Board for personal reasons and is not resigning because of a disagreement with the Board or the Company. Mr. Dillon, a director since 2000, currently serves as Chairman of the Compensation and Benefits Committee, a member of the Governance and Nominating Committee and a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company.

Separately, in accordance with the agreement, dated February 4, 2009 (the “JANA Agreement”), between the Company and JANA Partners LLC (“JANA”) (which was filed on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 5, 2009), Barry Rosenstein, a director since 2009 and a member of the Finance Committee of the Board, is resigning from the Board effective as of the 2011 Annual Meeting. In conjunction with his resignation, Mr. Rosenstein stated “It’s been a genuine pleasure to serve on this board and be a part of the dynamic change at Convergys over the last two years, including a new CEO and improved strategic focus. As one of the Company’s largest shareholders, we feel like we and other shareholders remain in very good hands under the leadership of Jeff Fox and a dedicated board.”
