Amway said Thursday that it is laying off up to 900 employees in Ada and California as part of its global restructuring. The Ada-based direct selling company shared the news after informing employees in an internal memo. Amway said the workforce reduction will be carried out via a voluntary separation plan offered to eligible employees, most of whom work in Ada, between now and the end of 2021, though some employees will stay on into 2022. "We announced to U.S. employees that as we invest even more in nutrition science, innovation and manufacturing, and in delivering seamless social, shopping and customer experiences to help our Amway business owners around the world grow and thrive, we will also be restructuring our operations," the company said. "This restructure includes the reduction of up to 900 roles in Ada and Buena Park, (California). It is our hope to achieve as much of this as we can through voluntary departures, and we will offer generous terms that align to our values, treating all employees with openness, dignity and respect."
