NEW YORK (AP) The NYT is releasing a new exit strategy to help the paper’s newsroom cut costs amid a new era of digital disruption.
The book is called “No Exit” and will be released this week, according to the paper.
It tells the story of how Times employees, in addition to other employees, were instructed to work out of offices, not at desks and were told to avoid public transit, according of the paper on its website.
“Our staff is committed to working in close proximity to each other, to making the best decisions for the business, and to each others’ best interests,” the paper said.
The book says employees who are on the move and cannot return to their desks will be offered relocation assistance to other offices.
Some of the NYT staff will be assigned to other cities and towns.
It also says the NYT will pay more attention to its newsroom employees who do not want to move.
For its part, the NYT said it will continue to hire, promote and reward employees who have made a commitment to staying.
The paper said it would offer employees more frequent and flexible breaks in the middle of work, a way to reduce turnover.
It also plans to make sure that its new workforce has a positive experience with the newsroom.
It also has begun hiring for positions that will provide them with a “voice” on topics they care about.
Those positions will be announced later this year.
This is a developing story.
