Folks were let go today from Staples Corp Headquarters. Any additional information on this? Please speak.
Work and win.
And all through the house, not a creature was stirring except careers left doubt. Now that reality has set in and plans have been tossed in a Tru Red trash bin, there is nothing left to celebrate that not even a consulting group can mitigate. We all... — read more

What are your thoughts about potential Staples Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
What are the chances of SBA Canada being sold to Canada Retail? With sales and EBITDA off target (I think), and still lots of channel confusion - do we think that SD might just sell up to Canada Retail and focus on the US? If so, even more people... — read more
Transforming or destroying?
Yet another HUGE waste of time. What fool approved this nonsense?
There is so much uncertainty and the direction seems all over the place. The push for voluntary resignations will lead to layoffs. Who in their right mind would ask to resign if it was not a guarantee? So disappointing in a company I have dedicated... — read more
With all the fake metric excuses being used to fire all the older managers (READ HIGHER PAID) the wrongful dismissal lawsuits for age discrimination are following. There may be enough of these to support a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. What do you think?

7 weeks, please, Sandy, try again
Stressing retail in your classification is a joke. Retail accounts for a sliver of income. It is not the brick and mortar that make money - for the or OD/OM. It is the b2b division, the reason the FTC shot down a merger.
Rate your role, quota, pay, manager, director and VP.
Ask they said - thou shall be given to you.

How bad can it be at Staples if SBA Canada is FORCING associates to spend $50 a week each on buying FS products to make the EBITDA target? How stupid has management become - and can Sandy really support these sorts of dumb ideas?
Seeing that there are so many layers that are useless, someone higher up mentioned that directors of TAMS/KAMS and CSS teams will be re-organizing by end of year....
