Best Buy Launches In-Store Reorganization
Best Buy in recent days has put into place a reorganization of its retail operations, meant to place more employees out in front of customers, a company spokesman confirmed Monday. The move will include both pay cuts and limited job eliminations.
The reorganization, which which largely carried out on Saturday, was the culmination of a multiple-month process, beginning with its headquarters layoffs early in this year, in which the company was "looking at our retail operating model and how it was laid out," spokesman Justin Barber told Dealerscope.
The result was a "kind of re-shifting of talent," in which Best Buy "completely revamped our retail operating model," Barber said.
