Rogers to streamline operations, laying off 300

For the past few quarterly results Rogers has always included “heightened competitive intensity” in their reports. The company employs over 30,000 and it seems there’s some shuffling happening. 300 Canadians, mostly management and staff at head office, will unfortunately be laid off. The reason is to streamline operations, reduce costs and improve overall productivity. No word on how many of the 300 are specifically related to wireless, but a Rogers spokesperson stated that “We want our customers to understand that it won’t affect customer service”. Rogers will be reporting their Q1 2012 results on April 24th, at the end of 2011 Rogers wireless subscriber base reached 9,335,000.
