STOCKHOLM (AP) — Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil says it will lay off up to 1,500 staff and 500 consultants by the end of 2016 to slash costs.

The state-controlled company said Tuesday the layoffs are a continuation of a cost-cutting program started in 2013, "well ahead of the current downturn" and the slump in the oil price.

Deep TrekkerIt is very easy for companies to fall into a habit of “this is how we have always done it” or “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” There are many articles, motivational posters, white papers, blogs and cartoons all across the online media world outlining the downfall of stagnation in business.
