Thread regarding Kroger Co. layoffs

WFH ... temporary, or permanent?

We non-essentials are now slated to continue working from home until 6/1. Will the company leverage this window to re-evaluate it’s necessary infrastructure to support non-essential associates? Do we need the buildings and garages, do teams really need an office, or are they performing effectively without it? Is there an opportunity to jettison a building or two? May a couple garages? Think of the cost reductions laying on the table? How can we support social distancing with a 25 story building with cramped elevators?

It will be interesting to see what the first half of 2020 brings. I expect big changes ...

I do like the cost savings but I think there is too many people in this company that has lost what it means to work in a store or help a customer. Sitting at home running reports and starting new programs without any idea what it is like in a store.
Never have a little old lady yell at you because the customer next to her won't ware a mask.
We have the best out of stock sign program in the industry. Why not fix the warehouses and hold manufacturers accountable to fill up the stores. Not just sit at home and blame the store personnel while you watch the food network.
