Global agency Edelman has launched a “strategic review” of its workforce, as it closely monitors the global economic environment, reports PRWeek.
“We continue to grow and deliver industry-leading work,” an Edelman spokesperson told PRWeek. “However, we want to ensure that we are optimizing our business in order to continue to operate from a position of strength amid current headwinds.”
Along with the review, Edelman, which has a D.C. office, is instituting a hiring freeze and limiting travel for non-client activities and firm-sponsored events.
The spokesperson would not comment further.
Edelman has 66 offices worldwide and approximately 6,000 employees.
