"Nestlé IT North America Announces Strategic Review Results

Since 2018, Nestlé’s IT function has undertaken a transformation to enhance its technical capabilities and change its ways of working to better support Nestlé’s evolving business needs.

Most recently with this transformation, the divestment of Nestlé Waters USA in early 2021 triggered the need to further review the organization in Nestlé IT North America. In April 2021, the Nestlé IT NA team was informed of the start of a review on needed changes to ensure the organization can meet the business’s current and future needs, while also reducing its costs to fit the business scope.

Today, Nestlé IT NA announced the results of a strategic review and extent of the impact on the organization, including approximately 340 Nestlé IT NA positions across the region that will transition to external partners or a new Nestlé IT NA office to be opened in Mexico City. There are approximately 800 people in the current Nestlé IT NA organization, spread across North American businesses and the Nestlé IT NA hub in St. Louis, which employs approximately 450 people. Scope of the project includes roles under Nestlé IT NA, not roles under Purina.

Plan objectives include dedicating more resources to the OpCos to understand their needs and proactively develop solutions, investing in key capabilities to protect operations and supply and enable digital business transformation, changing ways of working to deliver Nestlé IT solutions more rapidly, and better positioning Nestlé IT NA as a strategic partner for the future.

Each position in the Nestlé IT NA operating model will be reviewed throughout the remainder of 2021, with communication of final impacts expected in January 2022. After that notification, transition will be managed in waves starting in March 2022, based on the needs of the business."

They tuned their employees to a certain model now they're confused. Management has no idea of how to solve problems. Their best guess is to outsource. Thier manage style is "Office Space" at its worst.
