Focus on the Family has cut its workforce by nearly half since 2002.
Friday’s layoff of 110 workers reduced its staff to 750. Over the past two years, Focus has let go 385 employees. Eight years ago it had 1,400 on the payroll.
“The economy continues to be in recession,” said Focus spokesman Gary Schneeberger, explaining the latest cuts. “And people who have given in the past are having financial difficulties of their own.”
While most of the positions eliminated Friday were in service departments, more than 15 managerial jobs, including two senior executive positions, were also axed, Schneeberger said.
