The Week: People News - LBi makes 17 redundant

LBi has laid off 17 members of staff as the economic climate deteriorates.

The redundancies, which mainly comprise "mid-range" staff, have been limited to the design and build disciplines in the agency, and do not include any employees from the media and search departments. Despite the redundancies, LBi is still the UK's largest digital marketing agency, with more than 400 staff.
