罗杰斯通讯公司将其数字内容和出版团队的规模缩减约三分之一。这家总部位于多伦多的公司表示,大约有75名全职员工被裁员,将该团队的规模缩减至150人左右。

罗杰斯表示,裁员反映了该行业面临的“不利因素”,该行业一直在处理消费者阅读习惯长达数年的变化以及大多数老牌出版商的广告收入损失。
数字内容和出版部门主要是为Maclean’s, Today’s Parent, Hello! Canada, Flare, MoneySense, Canadian Business 和Chatelaine 提供内容服务。

Chatelaine的总编辑Lianne George发推文说,她决定离开杂志和罗杰斯。

该公司还表示数字内容和出版高级副总裁Steve Maich将在今年夏天晚些时候离开该组织。 而Sarah Trimble则被任命为数字内容和出版副总裁。

大部分裁员都是在多伦多工作,包括各种编辑角色。

这家位于多伦多的公司拥有加拿大最大的媒体业务之一,积极参与印刷和数字出版,包括Sportsnet专业频道在内的无线电广播和电视。
它表示,目前所有的出版品牌都将继续存在,公司将继续致力于提供高质量的编辑内容。

Rogers Communications is cutting the size of its digital content and publishing team by about one-third.

The Toronto-based company says about 75 full-time employees have been laid off, reducing the size of that team to about 150 people.

Rogers says the job cuts reflect the “headwinds” faced by its industry, which has been dealing with a years-long change in consumer reading habits and a loss in advertising revenue at most established publishers.

The digital content and publishing division produces content for Maclean’s, Today’s Parent, Hello! Canada, Flare, MoneySense, Canadian Business and Chatelaine.

Lianne George, editor in chief at Chatelaine, tweeted that she has decided to leave the magazine and Rogers.

The company also said the reorganization will see Steve Maich, senior vice-president of digital content and publishing, leave the organization later this summer. Sarah Trimble was named vice-president, digital content and publishing.

The majority of the cuts were staff based in Toronto and included a variety of editorial roles.

The Toronto-based company has one of Canada’s biggest media businesses, active in print and digital publishing, radio broadcasting and television including the Sportsnet specialty channels.
It says that all of its current publishing brands will continue and the company remains committed to producing high-quality editorial content.
