Nike, Inc. is restructuring its business. The company said it intends to realign its businesses throughout the organization and may result in an overall reduction of up to four percent of the company’s workforce. The Beaverton, OR., behemoth employs nearly 35,000 people worldwide.
“The power of the Nike brand and the diversity of the Nike portfolio continue to be a competitive strength,” stated Mark Parker, President and CEO of NIKE, Inc. “In light of the current economic climate, it is more essential than ever to sharpen our focus on the consumer to maximize opportunities for product innovation and brand management in the marketplace. The decision to reduce our workforce is a difficult one, but it will put our business in the strongest position possible to continue to deliver long-term profitability and growth.”
As part of this effort, the company will review its entire supply chain from the sourcing base to the retail footprint to ensure it is in the best position to bring elevated consumer experiences to market. It anticipates completing the review of its organization by the end of the current fiscal year. The exact number, timing and location of positions expected to be eliminated will not be known until the review is completed and employee representative bodies have been consulted within accordance with local legal requirements. No word on how or to what extent this will be felt within Nike Golf.
