GoodLife Fitness has announced a major staffing shake-up as the London-based company implements a new club IT system.
On Thursday, GoodLife confirmed it’s eliminating 60 roles at its headquarters and 250 positions at clubs across Canada, mostly part-time. The London Free Press first reported the restructuring.
“GoodLife employees involved in this change, that do not find other positions within the company, will be offered separation packages, as well as access to career transition services and extended access to GoodLife’s Employee Assistance Program,” said GoodLife Chief Operating Officer Jane Riddell.
GoodLife says it’s creating a new position, a Senior Motivator, as part of the restructuring process, and hopes to retain some of the employees affected by the layoff announcement.
GoodLife’s staffing changes come roughly a month after the company moved into its new 60,000 square-foot headquarters on Proudfoot Lane in west London.
Riddell says GoodLife is the first company to introduce this new club management IT system in North America.
“The implementation of this new system presented the need to restructure some positions within the company. These changes were thoughtfully evaluated and considered before any decisions were made.”
The changes are set to begin in the spring of 2017.
