Guess it’s that kind of day. While we haven’t received official word on any approximate numbers or departments affected, a spokesperson for EuroRSCG Chicago confirms that the agency did have to let go of some folks. Tipsters are saying that mid/senior level staff were among those affected, but we haven’t received confirmation on this. What we do have for now is this statement below, which makes it seem that things are on the up and up for the most part. This latest round of news comes just a few months after Euro Chi cut five percent of staff due to Sprint (we’ve been told that the account loss didn’t play a role in this latest round).
“Euro RSCG Chicago continues to do well and is winning new business. In the next few weeks, we’ll be announcing two new business wins and two senior hires. While we’ve always been digitally focused, we’re evolving the way the agency works to be even more digitally driven. As a result, we have let go of some employees and hired others that are best suited for our new business.”
We’re expecting to find out about the “wins” and “hires” within the next week. Stay tuned.
