AUCKLAND, Today: Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand has managed to limit its post-Covid layoff numbers to just four individuals.

A fifth person will be deployed “with the Publicis Groupe”. This morning’s announcement was foreshadowed last week when Sydney-based AUNZ ceo Michael Rebelo predicted redundancies within Publicis agencies on both sides of the Tasman.

“Redundancies have been limited by the cost-containment measures we’ve already taken.”

The move follows last week’s announcement of more an a dozen voluntary redundancies at Colenso BBDO.

In a brief statement issued to M+AD this morning, Saatchi NZ MD Paul Wilson said: “Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand is one of the agencies affected, however, redundancies have been limited by the cost-containment measures already taken by the agency and the Groupe.”
