LAYOFFS: MIDDLE MANAGERS CONTINUE TO BE MOST FREQUENTLY SEPARATED

 LAYOFFS: MIDDLE MANAGERS CONTINUE TO BE MOST FREQUENTLY SEPARATED
 PHILADELPHIA, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Middle managers tend to be the ones losing jobs most in corporate layoffs, according to data released by Right Associates.
 Statistics show 57 percent of the candidates seen by the firm in 1991 had been receiving salaries within the $40,000 to $80,000 range.
 "Our statistics suggest organizations are continuing to eliminate middle management positions in an effort to streamline their operations," said Stanley R. Tilton, president and chief executive officer of Right Associates. "By separating these workers, employers are effectively cutting costs and increasing the accountability of lower-level employees."
 "Companies need to eliminate positions carefully, however," Tilton cautioned. "Middle managers have typically been with a corporation for a significant period of time and have learned the business and culture of the organization. Many have skills and knowledge that may be overlooked."
 Right Associates, headquartered in Philadelphia, has more than 85 offices across the United States, Canada and Western Europe. It is the world's leading publicly held consulting firm specializing in career management and human resource consulting. The firm is well known for its career transition consulting services designed to help employers with termination issues and to help separated employees develop skills and strategies to assist them in finding new employment.
