Rogers media has laid off 87 employees in two days as the company continues to struggle with print challenges.
Thursday, 27 full-time employees were dismissed in the Rogers English-language digital content and publishing division. The change aims to reduce duplicate roles and focus staff towards dealing with print media challenges.
This latest round of layoffs comes just one day after 60 full-time employees were dismissed on Wednesday.
The company’s Quebec-based publications are facing a wide array of changes, including Chatelaine, L’actualite and the French and English editions of Loulou.
The Quebec version of Chatelaine will be reduced to six prints a year starting in 2017.
Rogers is currently in the midst of a sales process for L’actualite. Meanwhile, a successful buyer has not been found for Loulou, which will be shut down by the end of the year.
