Depuy Synthes Lays Off Entire Extremities Sales Force

Posted on May 23, 2019 by Medtech[y] Staff


There have been rumors on our Depuy Synthes company forum that layoffs were on the horizon, and yesterday word got out that the company did, in fact, layoff their entire extremities sales force.

In a statement to Medtechy, Jodie Wertheim of Depuy Synthes, commented on the layoffs:

DePuy Synthes recently made a strategic decision to move away from a dedicated extremities sales force as part of an ongoing assessment of resource utilization and optimization, resulting in an overall reduction in positions. We remain dedicated to our Extremities business and have allocated responsibilities for those products to a complimentary sales team. These decisions are not taken lightly and we are deeply committed to helping our employees through this time and providing transition assistance. The impacted sales consultants are able to apply for other positions within the company.

We will update this post if more information becomes available.
