Last week we shared the work that earned the most clicks on our blog over the past twelve months, and today we’ve finally gotten to the real news: staffing updates and assorted “people” stories.
2014 included the usual share of hires, re-organizations and, of course, layoffs. If anything, the posts in this roundup reflect the year at large: a bit of shallow humor and a bunch of unfortunate headlines.
The year’s biggest staffing story wasn’t a real staffing story…but it did include the word “porn” in its headline.
“I recommend all those who just lost their jobs use this time to find a real career.”

A departure for Nissan and further fallout from the Publicis consolidation.

The man behind the Aflac duck announced his departure after eight years of service and a few days of speculation; still no word on where he’s going or who will replace him in the next year.
