Nike is planning job cuts that is estimated to lead to $200 million to $250 million in one-time employee termination costs, as the company focuses on a strategy shift.
The athletic clothing and footwear company had announced in June a new strategy in its e-commerce push called the Consumer Direct Acceleration, amid conronavirus pandemic-induced consumer shift from brick and mortar stores to online shopping.
While Nike did not specify the number of job cuts, it did say the online push was “expected to lead to a net loss of jobs across the company," resulting in the one-time charge.
Last quarter, Nike’s e-commerce sales grew +75% even as overall revenue fell.
