Thread regarding Staples Inc. layoffs

Any details on SBA Canada cuts?

It’s because MM believes that sales people are sacred. She doesn’t understand that so many AMs and IAMs get paid commissions but don’t actually have relationships with their customers. Staples Preferred proves that you can grow your business in the small market with just marketing. Is anyone left in SBA marketing now btw? They used to be an amazing team...

KK - no way. She’s been here forever for about 15 years. I guess HR isn’t that important any more.

They normally use the leadership to come up with the cuts, and when the dirty work is done, cut the leadership...
