I'm hearing Cork support DP team is for the chop. No surprise - language support for customers that aren't even requesting it! The site cannot keep staff - those recruitment and re-hiring costs are crippling.

Site leadership are playing a dangerous game believing that pursuing a language policy will safeguard their own future. However any close scrutiny will reveal the sham that exists. Past Italian speakers - when virtually no Italian customers exist, similar story with Spanish. Staff walking out without new employment to go to. When something is suffering let it die peacefully. Panama can pick up the reigns - low cost support for low performing products. Logical to non middle managing internal staff but maybe too obvious for Elliot partnership?

They're full into "keep a close eye on costs" mode. The numbers for 3rd quarter were bad so panic is setting in for Jeff and company. "Bonuses will be paid" which means the profit goals will be met. Only two ways that can happen - more money coming in or less money going out. Sales numbers are way off so once they get a handle on the 4th quarter estimates, the layoffs will start up again. Best guess - mid January.
