Layoffs at Organic Detroit

Organic Detroit let go of approximately 72 of its 175 employees last week, a source close to the company confirms. Layoffs at the digital agency primarily affected contractors and junior-staffers, leaving upper management intact. According to the source, the layoff largely affected Organic employees who were tied to the Chrysler account, which Organic lost to SapientNitro back in February.

However, the bad news comes with a small silver lining, as the source says Organic is actually hiring for a variety of positions on its Kimberly-Clark team, and has a few new accounts in the works.
