Tuesday, 01 Sep, 2020

GRAND RAPIDS — Reduced demand brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a significant workforce reduction at Steelcase Inc.

The Grand Rapids – based furniture maker  announced measures Tuesday  to reduce the cost structure for the company’s corporation functions and Americas segment.

A combination of  early retirements  and both voluntary  and involuntary  separations shed the company of 300 salaried employees, or 8 percent of Steelcase’s salaried workforce in the Americas and corporate front office.
