The British footwear retailer, Clarks, has announced plans to cut almost 900 jobs as a part of their restructuring strategy.
The company revealed that there have been several redundancies in the job profiles especially at their Somerset headquarters which totalled at 108. This means that the company is trying to streamline the company hierarchy while also keeping deliverables and profiles non-redundant.
This also means that there will be new positions opening up in the company and the brand expects an addition of 200 new jobs to fill in.
Clarks has named it the ‘Made to Last’ strategy which aims at bringing the company at par with the modern standards while also ensuring relevancy in the future.
The strategy came into picture as COVID-19 plagued retail on a global scale which gave them time to rethink about the business.
The brand is gradually starting to open stores in select locations which comply with the provincial guidelines.
