RETENTION: Dick’s CEO Ed Stack totals up how many employees quit over assault-style weapon decision.

According to CEO Ed Stack, 62 employees quit working for Dick’s Sporting Goods over the retailer’s decision to stop selling assault-style weapons, announced in February.

Stack spoke on the matter before the Wall Street Journal CEO Council and called the number “relatively small” in the context of a company that employs 40,000 people.

“We anticipated that there would be some people that would leave. We’ve got 40,0000 employees, and 2,500, or 2,6000 people working at our corporate headquarters,” said Stack, of the Findlay-based company. “We’re a cross-section of the country. We knew people would be upset.”

It’s the upset customers he needs to account for to his company’s shareholders.
