Details are hazy on this one, but after days of receiving tips including “reorg at ogilvy chicago today. Very high up changes,” we have received confirmation that O&M’s Windy City location has had to cut some staff this week (specifically Wednesday). We’re trying to get more info including numbers, reasons, departments affected, etc. on this but in the meantime, here’s a statement:
“After several years of significant growth, Ogilvy Chicago had a reduction in staff today. This is never an easy course of action, especially at an agency that places such high value on our people and our culture. We took a close look at our costs mid-year and the move was necessary to position ourselves for future success.”
We’ll let you know if and when we find out more.
