Telstra cutting dead management wood

Upto 330 staff may lose jobs

Telstra is conducting a review of its management structure that could reportedly see up to 330 senior staff lose their jobs - many of whom are believed to be on six-figure salaries.

"These changes are about making our business simpler, removing duplication and increasing the speed of decision-making," Telstra said in a company statement. "All of the changes are intended to make processes simpler for our front-line staff, enabling them to make things happen faster and serve customers better."

It is believed the layoffs will come into effect in the near future as part of CEO David Thodey’s ongoing reorganisation of the telco.

The news comes on the back of ongoing waves of redundancies within Telstra's workforce. In late April the telco confirmed union claims it was discussing cutting around 900 jobs over the coming year, although at that stage the idea was just a proposal.

Under former chief executive, Sol Trujillo, the telco cut many thousands of jobs as it streamlined its operations and modernised its technology. Thodey has helmed the telco for more than a year now, but has taken a less aggressive approach to redundancies.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
