You can't cut your way to success....

Worked with Sage over the last few years and seen them cut, cut and cut again re:staff levels, all to keep margins up. Now they've got too few good staff who are too stretched to deliver and as a result an unhappy workforce. There were some really talented folk in the ~30 senior people they most recently culled.

Kelly has found out, that you can't cut your way to success. What they need is more investment in product and people to make it happen. All businesses go in cycles and need to give up some margin to further grow top line.

Really sad to see what's happening there, hopefully a new CEO can restore it's standing and performance.
