Merry Christmas! You’re laid off!
HSN has wielded the ax at its HQ in St. Petersburg, according to the Tampa Bay paper.
Many companies let employees go right at the end of the year or at the start of the new year, to make their balance sheets look better. And HSN had a crappy third quarter, which doesn’t help matters.
None of this, of course, helps if you are among the folks who get pink slips.
HSN would only say it cut less than 1 percent of its workforce.
