Another 100+ Focus Employees Let Go
Last Friday we noted that Focus on the Family was facing another round of lay-offs, though it was unknown at the time just how many employees would lose their jobs
Today, it is being reported that another 110 employees have been let go, reducing the organization's size almost by half from it's peak in 2002:
Focus on the Family laid off 110 workers Friday, a 13 percent reduction in workforce.
While most of the positions eliminated were in service departments, more than 15 managerial jobs, including two senior executive positions, were also axed, Focus spokesman Gary Schneeberger said today.
With Friday's layoffs, Focus has let go 385 employees over the past two years. Since 2002, Focus' workforce has been trimmed almost in half, from 1,400 to 750.
"The economy continues to be in recession," said Schneeberger, explaining a reason for the layoffs. "And people who have given in the past are having financial difficulties of their own."
The ministry's fiscal 2010-11 budget is $105 million, a $27 million cut from last year's fiscal budget, Schneeberger said.
Focus' budget for fiscal 2008-09 was $160 million.
