9264: Firing And Hiring At Draftfcb Chicago.

Labor Day News: Draftfcb in Chicago was fired by longtime client SC Johnson, and subsequently axed at least 100 employees. Yet the Agency of the Future is still recruiting for fresh candidates via TalentZoo and other job sites. After dumping workers into the Windy City streets, Draftfcb President-CEO Laurence Boschetto declared, “We consider ourselves a ‘human organization,’ one that deeply cares for the well-being of all our employees, even those for whom we don’t currently have a place in our company. That is why we wanted to help as many of them as possible get jobs within the industry. This will hopefully result in an easier transition for them and for the SC Johnson business. We realize that providing such assistance on the heels of a long, arduous review is certainly not typical, but it underscores why our Chicago agency has been named one of the best places to work in the city and state 15 times over the past five years.” Right. Wonder if the ‘human organization’ is spending as much time helping the terminated as they are seeking newbies to join one of the best places to work in the city and state.
