ITF Furloughs Half its Staff to Cut Costs

The International Federation has furloughed nearly half of its staff as part of a job protection scheme for employees, it said in a statement.

In a statement, ITF President David Haggerty laid out what he called short-term mandates, which included a personal pay cut of 30 percent.

“The situation we are facing represents a fundamental challenge to our organisation and our sport,” the statement said. “Our purpose is to ensure the long-term growth and sustainability of our sport in collaboration with our 210 member nations, which is why we are making difficult decisions in the short term so that we can continue to deliver tennis for future generations across the globe.”

According to the statement, the remaining ITF staff will continue to work to sustain business critical services and essential platforms with a 10 percent reduction in salary. The Senior Leadership Team has taken a 20 percent reduction in salary as well.
