Geos denies there is a crisis

There have been rumors that Geos is in trouble since last September when a Geos spokesman admitted that sales were down and that the Nova collapse had caused 'distrust among the public about English language schools'. The EL Gazette now reports that Geos is strongly denying the rumors.

According to the report, Chad Lafferty, Geos Teaching Ltd's human resources director, said 'Opening and closing locations is a normal part of business... The global recession has certainly impacted the way we do business but it would be wrong to say that any closures of the company are directly related to the recession.' He went on to say that 'Geos hasn't laid off a single employee due to business results or the recession. Furthermore, we have no plans to do so.'
