Nike aims to cut staff

This past Tuesday, Nike revealed that they will be laying off 700 employees from their Portland, Oregon headquarters by the beginning of 2021. The upcoming layoffs are a part of a company restructuring plan announced in July 2020.

What is surprising about these cuts is that Nike is not experiencing a downturn in revenue because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, Nike’s earning for the third quarter of 2020 was $1.5 billion, compared to the $1.4 billion in earnings of the 2019 third quarter.

Nike’s restructuring process will refocus the business’ operations around online direct-to-consumer sales. As of May 2020, Nike employed 75,400 workers.
