Layoffs Hit Rodan + Fields – WWD

The wonder industry job cuts in California proceed.

After Proactiv parent company Alchemee cut 89 jobs, one other WARN notice filed within the state of California revealed 76 layoffs have been made at Rodan + Fields’ Bay Area office.

The antiaging skincare line was began by Proactiv founders and practicing dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields in 2000.

It was acquired by The Estée Lauder Cos., but repurchased by Rodan and Fields in 2007 and relaunched the next 12 months with a direct-sales model, constructing a network of independent consultants to sell products.

​​Within the spring of 2018, TPG made a strategic minority investment in Rodan + Fields.

A spokesperson said: “Rodan + Fields has made some organizational changes to optimize the corporate’s structure and teams for long-term success. These changes included the difficult but obligatory decision to scale back our home office workforce affecting 76 employees.”

Earlier this 12 months, the Estée Lauder Cos.’s California brands — Smashbox, Too Faced and Glamglow — initiated layoffs in California as those businesses face challenges, while international operations have also been scaled back for some brands.
