Wyevale Garden Centres (WGC) are undergoing restructuring in an attempt to create more customer facing roles.
WGC currently has 2 regional operations directors in place who lead 11 area managers, who will be split geographically to allow our area management team to spend more time in garden centres.
30 people were potentially impacted by the changes, but it?s likely that the number of people likely to leave the business will be about half that. The rest will be redeployed into customer facing roles.
A Wyevale Garden Centre spokesperson said, ?Our aim is to maintain our position as the UK?s leading, customer focused garden centre retailer.? As part of our ongoing plans to strengthen the business we have realigned our teams to place an even greater focus on customers and Garden Centres.? As a result, overall Head Office headcount will reduce, but there will be shift to focusing more on customer facing roles to reflect our strategic priorities. Where possible, we will maximise the opportunities for redeployment elsewhere in the business.?
