We must not take this as a grain of salt, it's factual and real - it's well documented and will shatter thousands of careers, impact family life, etc.... Before there were rumors, and Bam! Look what happened, this Holy restructuring came into play... read more
Kimberly-Clark is literally using tax break to finance layoffs. And nobody cares!!! Is our country really so screwed up that a CFO of a major corporation can openly say that tax break meant to create jobs will be used to lay off more than 5,000... read more
Too offer $1 dividend to stock holders for each share of stock. How many shares does Tom Falk have? Yearly pay $7.4 million dollars of stock plus $2.1million is stock options. Not that $75,600 does much but the stock going up also pads the pockets.
Since very few of us can be certain we'll have a job by the end of this year, I thought this article could help prepare better for what's to come. If you think your job is at risk or have recently been laid off, “the first thing you need to do is... read more
I'm wondering if Kimberly-Clark will use the 2018 layoffs as an excuse to get rid of more of us old-timers... The management has certainly been doing its best to make our lives miserable in hopes we would leave on our own... I really wish age... read more
I guess 2018 is a slow year because for some reason these Kimberly-Clark layoffs are really gaining traction in media coverage. I'm saying for some reason because I've been checking out other boards here and the biggest complaint from people seems to... read more
These cuts were coming regardless of the tax breaks KC just received from the Trump tax plan. KC was divested in several other businesses away from it's core which have not sustained profitability. Even the core products have been not sustaining... read more
This is just a beginning, guys. I would bare all the anxiousness that I'm feeling right know if I knew that things will become better after this layoffs (even if my job goes under the bus). But with this management, completely vision blind and... read more
I think that most will be out of KCNA - at this point NA is facing at least 200 layoffs. It's a rough day for all of us. Remember, no matter what future brings be positive, good to others and God will take care of you. God bless!

Earnings went up, sales went up - peachy. Yet, cost savings target of $1.5B from 2018 to 2021 - let's continue the FORCE program (Focused On Reducing Costs Everywhere) and let's up the Global Restructuring Program to trim the supply chain and overall... read more
Anybody knows how many of the announced layoffs will be in the US? Kimberly-Clark is a big company, and I'm thinking that laying off those in countries with better benefits that cost more will be the way they'll go. I still might be wrong, because at... read more
It’s safe to say that leadership at the executive level is only concerned with short term results instead of focusing on a long term strategy. At the moment their strategy is so disconnected from current industry needs that employees are taking the... read more
I'm seriously wondering if there is one Kimberly-Clark employee who is sitting at home or work right now and thinking "wow, this is a surprise." Everybody knew something like this was coming. This company has been off the rails for years now. We have... read more
So much for no layoffs and so much for 'respecting the individual' and the worker. Now, it's official and for all of us that were on this forum before and warning about this, it's not a surprise. I can tell you that 5K was a bit more than I expected... read more

Rumor - So, I heard... I can tell you probably 10 different things here but here is the summary. Kimberly Clark spends a lot on IT, we will be looking into ways how to streamline this and cut costs. We will be doing into outsourcing additional pieces... read more
