Thread regarding Whole Foods Market Inc. layoffs

Regions Realigning

So construction, the last of the support Teams to be touched is reorganizing and will split into 4 Regions- guess what comes after that- everyone else!! WFM can't make money with Ivory Towers filled with friends and family so they are starting to centralize more. Really a company with 400+ stores doesn't need 11 or 12 Regions- think of all the dead wood in your Regional office!! April 1 Construction will be reorganized then its the rest to come- summer is slow and before the Holidays. Good luck to all.

When is the going to happen? It’s been a rumor for years now. Lots of regional fat that needs to go.

so if you haven't heard what is going on- everyone in design and construction has to reapply for their positions at every level- many of them at significantly less money- 3 Regions total East, West and North. It's the beginning of the realignment- don't think you mean anything to Amazon- they are like Private Equity- look what happened to Fairway, Lucky's and Earth Fare- you are just a commodity- get out before the market is full of people looking for the same positions- after A&P went under there were many more people than jobs in the industry. Whole Foods was never designed to be a structured corporation- it was always free flowing and went where the winds blew it. They can never be profitable with the Ivory Tower buddy networks running the show. They have to consolidate so they can be competitive on pricing now that conventional retailers can sell O&N products for less.

think about it- Whole Foods not producing for Amazon- the big B is performance centric- can't cut labor in the stores anymore so where do the cuts come to make the company profitable. that and the wicked witch of the east is calling the shots and this is her MO- then people can't sue for discrimination or anything else because it's a consolidation of work force.

I've asked some regional folks about this and no one has heard anything about it. Unless the OP is a global employee in the know, this thread is b.s.

I hope that means the garbage is being taken out in my region! So much trash, not even worth recycling

Switching to the four regions is what the marketing teams did back in 2017. As such, everyone had to reapply for their jobs due to redundancy. Not saying that is going to happen again but it makes sense.

We have 12 regions including the UK. How is it possible for 11 to get culled down to 4?

look at the alignment of the construction regions- makes sense that merch and ops will follow. looks like they were divided by total number of stores. from a design standpoint this makes the most sense.

So have the regional office footprints been getting smaller since all of this realignment began... since less people work there?
