McDonald’s U.S. president Joe Erlinger last month announced the changes to its organizational structure. “These decisions weren’t easy to make, but I am confident this is the right path forward to improve how we solve problems for our customers and people,” Erlinger said last month in a message to U.S. operators that was seen by Restaurant Business.

Ten field offices will be closed, according to Erlinger’s note, and employees who worked in those offices will now work remotely permanently. The closures come as McDonald’s deals with a post-pandemic environment where most of their field officers are mostly not working in the office and where more of their workers are in remote locations. McDonald’s employed about 150,000 throughout its corporate operations and company-owned restaurants prior to the layoff announcement, Yahoo News reports.

Some workers were notified that they could keep their jobs if they took cuts in their bonuses and equity grants, according to  an aticle from The Wall Street Journal.
