Iowa Based Grocery Store Plans to “Demote” Hundreds of Employees
News broke on Wednesday that even more changes were coming to an Iowa-based grocery store.
Hy-Vee officials announced that more changes would be coming to the retail giant this year. In March, news broke that many Hy-Vee employees were quietly being laid off. Reports said that these occurred in the marketing and information and technology departments
It looks like there will be more recalibrations within the grocery store chain.
In a statement posted to the Cedar Rapids Gazette earlier this week, Hy-Vee chairman and CEO Randy Edeker said,
"As a trusted retailer that millions of people depend on everyday, we need to make adjustments to better serve our customers and our more than 93,000 employees."
Store officials announced earlier this week that due to some financial issues they will be encouraging “up to 500 additional employees” to transition from corporate jobs to retail positions at the various stores, according to the Gazette.
Multiple major projects have also been put on pause for the time being. One of which is the new warehouse in Cumming, according to KWWL.
The rising cost of inflation as well as disruptions to the supply chain have also played a majot role in this entire situation, store officials claim.
