Getty employs less staff

Despite many acquisitions and increases in revenues Getty Images is employing less people than ever reports PDN.

By the end of 2006 the giant employed 1750 live bodies compared to 1,823 at the end of 2005, according to its annual report released Wednesday. It was the first time the number of people working for Getty has declined year-to-year since 2003.

The greatest decline in staffing was in Europe, where the number of Getty employees fell 7 percent from 711 to 663. The number of employees in North America fell about 3 percent from 975 to 943.
