Reuters reports that eastern Canadian telco Bell Aliant will cut about 500 management jobs, or about 15% of all its managers (5% of its total workforce), to reduce costs and help it make decisions more quickly. ‘The leaner management structure will bring all employees closer to customers, allow for faster decision making and reduce costs,’ CEO Karen Sheriff said in a statement.
