Ulta Beauty has laid off corporate and field management employees as it adjusts to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Eileen Ziesemer, spokeswoman for the Bolingbrook-based beauty retailer, declined to specify the number of workers or locations affected but said it was a "meaningful but relatively small" share of its employees. The layoffs took effect Tuesday. "While incredibly difficult, these decisions were made thoughtfully with a focus on resetting our corporate cost structure to operate more effectively and efficiently in the short-term as well as optimizing our enterprise capabilities to thrive in the long-term," Ziesemer said in a statement. Ulta also eliminated open roles, reorganized some groups and added a small number of new roles in areas the retailer plans to invest in, Ziesemer said. As of Feb. 1, before the pandemic, Ulta had about 18,000 full-time and 26,000 part-time employees, according to its most recent annual report.
