Myer has weighed in on the latest story circulating the rumour mill.
The department store has confirmed it is in the midst of further staff restructures.
As previously reported in ragtrader.com.au, the retailer recently announced it would slash its store support functions by up to 100 staff, including services such as marketing and events, IT, HR, and merchandise and supply chain.
However, Myer has now confirmed rumours it is undergoing a further restructure, which will affect its senior management team as it moves to create an 'office of the chief executive' to support CEO Bernie Brookes.
The changes were reportedly detailed in an email sent to senior Myer executives.
Myer general manager corporate affairs Jo Lynch said the company is currently going through “a realignment of some people” to “better support a range of future initiatives in the pipeline”.
The new structure will see the office of the CEO supervise functions such as business efficiency and services, strategic planning and sustainability, corporate affairs and the program management office.
It is expected that the new division will be supervised by Myer's current general manager of business services Greg Travers, with Travers reporting directly to Mr Brookes.
However, Travers will also retain his
current responsibilities, which include administration, corporate
affairs, training and other staff-related operations.
