COVID-19: Weber Shandwick reduces staff globally, cuts salaries of top executives
WEBER SHANDWICK has confirmed it is laying off, furloughing staff and cutting the pay of top agency executives. The agency did not reveal the size of the pay cuts or staff reductions, but is expected to reduce its team globally by approximately 4%, mostly in North America and larger EMEA offices. In Weber's London office, the cost cutting will include voluntary 'unpaid leave, reduced working hours or voluntary furlough or redundancy'. Unpaid leave or sabbaticals would last up to six months, but staffers must intend to come back to the agency. Salaries, bonuses and benefits would also be suspended during that time. London staffers can choose to work a 10- to 11-month year and spread the cost of the unpaid leave over the remainder.
