Thread regarding W.W. Grainger Inc. layoffs

Leadership Team Lacks Emotional Intelligence

The current leadership team lacks emotional intelligence and actually touts their "excitement" in the same breath as they announce that they are committing over a 50% role reduction and that current employees will be required to apply for the greatly reduced roles that are remaining. We are given 2 days notice to interview. The current staff sits in quiet astonishment...are we supposed to applaud these "leaders" and their exciting announcement? I guess an MBA doesn't ensure you have the sense to treat others as humans.

I suggest you take your talent elsewhere...

Let's not forget Grainger Sourcing just let go 22 full time employees. Replacing with 14 part-time employees, with reduced hours, pay and benefits in those positions. No job security anywhere in the company.

They are layoffing a lot of people and no one knows about it. Hey Chicago Tribune this isn't fake news. Probably trying to hide something by making us reapply. Yeah stay away and dump your stock.
