Thread regarding Follett layoffs

Beyond store level cuts?

Just wondering, is there ever a regional or above cut? I can understand layoffs at store level if they arent profitable, but seems like getting rid of 1 r.m., gap, or higher would save a lot more money than a low paid store position.

The problem with this cogent thought process is decision making (i.e. power) would have to be bestowed to front line management.

Good question. We rarely hear of it. The irony is that the profitability of a store is what the planners are putting (or not putting) into it. We need to trim the plug n play mentality of the home office and the payroll that entails. With more decisions based at the local level, this company could really turn itself around.
