BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — The Kellogg Company says it’s eliminating hundreds of jobs in North America, primarily at its headquarters in Battle Creek.
The company announced the cuts Wednesday as part of a restructuring plan it dubbed “Project K.” A Kellogg spokesperson said the majority of the 250 job cuts will happen in Battle Creek. Most affected employees will leave on Jan. 27.
A company spokesperson said employees who lose their jobs will be offered severance benefits and resources to find another job.
In a statement issued to 24 Hour News 8, Kellogg said the changes are part of a four-year plan to “fuel growth through greater efficiency and effectiveness.” Project K will focus on eliminating duplicated work across the company’s global, regional and business levels; cutting out work that “doesn’t drive the highest returns;” and shrinking organizational layers.
