IDG cuts 8% of staff, restructures

By Published on .

Framingham, Mass.—IDG Communications confirmed that it has cut about 8% of its U.S. staff as a result of a restructuring in its b-to-b group.

“IDG b-to-b brands such as CIO, Computerworld, InfoWorld, Network World, CSO, IT World and Industry Standard have been consolidated into one business unit headquartered in Framingham,” the company said in a statement.

IDG said the moves completed a process of moving from a “print publishing to a Web-centric business model.”

“Each b-to-b media brand will continue to have a dedicated editorial and sales team to support its respective customers. The consolidation will, however, enable IDG’s b-to-b brands to share resources and reduce costs in today’s difficult economic climate,” the statement said.
