In response to reports that Ogilvy & Mather was reducing its staff by 10%, Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide CEO Marcia Silverman tells PRWeek that the PR firm is not laying off any employees.

"There will be no economic layoffs at Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide," said Silverman, who notes that the agency had a successful 2008.

AdWeek reported that affected units include Ogilvy & Mather, OgilvyOne, Ogilvy Interactive, and OgilvyAction. Earlier this week, The Observer wrote that WPP was expected to cut thousands of jobs globally; a WPP spokesperson had no comment then.
