Rogers cuts 900 jobs due to “intensifying competition”

rogerswirelesslogoRogers has announced that due to “intensifying competition” they are cutting about 900 executive and management positions… this is in hopes to streamline their operations. The 900 jobs, mostly in marketing and communications, human resources, and technology support operations represents about 3% of their operations across Canada.

Rogers spokeswoman Terrie Tweddle said “The goal was to streamline the organization, remove the number of layers and enable quick and faster decision making. We actually continue to hire and invest in resources, particularly in customer-facing areas, while we’re going through the reorganization”.

Rogers president and CEO Nadir Mohamed said “Our industry is in transition with products and networks converging, product cycles maturing and customer expectations increasing. To remain the industry leader, we need to work and operate differently.”
