Doner Cuts Staff Once Again

We hesitate to call this a recurring theme as it’s been a few months since we last reported on cuts at Doner, but by our count, this is the third time this year we’ve had to report on something like this regarding the MDC-owned agency. Anyhow, we’ve received confirmation that Doner has made staffing adjustments today. As is the norm, no specifics including approximate numbers are being divulged, but here’s a statement from an agency spokesperson that sheds a little light:

“Today, we implemented staffing changes across the agency which have impacted about two percent of our staff.  Affected employees were provided with severance and support for new employment opportunities.  While it’s never easy, we’re confident that this will enable us to best allocate our resources while continuing to effectively serve our clients and build our business.”

We’re hearing that the Detroit and Cleveland offices were those affected by the “staffing changes.”
