Damage Control

AUCKLAND, Today: Publicis Groupe has confirmed that Saatchi & Saatchi is the only Groupe agency in NZ to be impacted by Covid-induced redundancies – confounding AUNZ ceo Michael Rebelo’s earlier warnings that 30+ roles were at risk in both countries.

Around 1570 people work for Publicis agencies in Australia and New Zealand.

To clarify, no other Publicis Groupe agencies – including Starcom and Zenith – are impacted in New Zealand.

“M+AD is asking other NZ agencies for their positions. We’ll publish this info as soon as our emails are answered.”

NZ’s other big network agencies are likely facing similar problems – but nobody’s volunteering info.

Colenso BBDO found a good solution earlier this week with their voluntary redundancy scheme. Let’s hope we see more of these.

M+AD is progressively emailing all agencies, asking for their positions. We’ll publish these as soon as they’re received.
