Saatchi & Saatchi Trims N.Y. Staff

NEW YORK–Saatchi & Saatchi laid off about 10 staffers this week, or roughly 2 percent of its workforce in New York, an agency representative confirmed.

The layoffs affected several departments but no senior-level positions were involved, said the representative, who described the move as “belt-tightening.” The rep added, “It’s really just a matter of increasing efficiencies.”

The office last significant cut was in February 2001 when about 50 staffers, or 8 percent of the workforce, were let go.
