STAFF at Bendigo’s Myer will be offered voluntary redundancies as the department store giant overhauls its operations.
Bendigo is one of 42 stores which arepart of the redundancy program.
A spokesperson for the company said the redundancies wouldgive Myer the flexibility to reduce staff hours during quieter periods.
“To continue to achieve high standards of service in the future, we are changing the mix of permanent and casual team members to achieve greater flexibility, so we can align our workforce with customer demand and adapt to changes in store traffic flows,” the spokesperson said.
“This new model will give Myer stores the ability to have more flexible hours available for peak periods such as Christmas and stocktake, while ensuring appropriate levels of service during quieter times. This is critical to meeting the expectations of our customers.
“This is part of a significant change to the way we approach customer service. Our future success will depend on our ability to have the right people in place at the right time to delight our customers every time they visit our stores.”
A Myer spokesperson said there was no target for redundancies at the Bendigo store.
