The aim of the change is to create a more efficient and flexible organisation and to free up resources for investments in digitalisation, among other things, which will also entail recruiting new competence.
“We will now have an organisation that can better meet customers’ and the stores’ expectations and will enable us to continue investing in the areas that are important for winning in the future,” comments Anders Svensson, CEO of ICA Sweden. “Of course we understand the concerns this gives rise to among the people whose positions will be removed or changed, and we will take care to carry out the change in the best way possible for everyone involved.”
Negotiations with trade unions have been initiated.The new organisation is estimated to be implemented in the second quarter of 2019.
