Nobody likes to hear about or be involved with this. My (and I'm sure all us participants on the board) best wishes to these employees and their families.

Mormon church announces layoffs in two departments
Labor • Downsizing affects 5-8 percent of workforce in those areas.

The LDS Church is downsizing two departments in its massive Salt Lake City headquarters, spokesman Michael Purdy said Wednesday.

“Today the church announced a planned reduction in workforce affecting primarily... the Publishing Services Department and the Information Communication Systems Department,” Purdy said in a statement. “This action is based solely on the need to be sure that resources are being used wisely to meet the evolving needs of a global church.”

The number of affected employees is “relatively small,” said Purdy, comprising “between 5 and 8 percent of the workforce of the two departments.”

Still, he said, “we are keenly aware that behind the numbers are individuals and families.”

The Utah-based church says it is “offering a substantial severance package to those impacted by these changes and will work to help these individuals find other employment.”
