Grey Global Group's Beyond Interactive on Jan. 26 laid off about 100 people, or 30% of its worldwide workforce. "We're experiencing a reorganization," said a Beyond spokeswoman, citing the "softening advertising market" for the layoffs. This is the second major round of layoffs for Beyond, which cut about 60 people, or 15% of its staff, in October 2000. Beyond services numerous dot-com clients, including PlanetRx, job site Kforce.com, ClassMates.com, ThirdAge.com and giftpoint.com.
