Rivian has Confirmed the Layoff of 50 Non-manufacturing Employees at its Normal Plant.

A Rivian spokesperson confirmed that approximately 50 employees at the Rivian electric vehicle plant in Normal are among the more than 840 workers laid off as part of a restructuring.

  1. The California-based EV company recently announced that it would reduce its workforce by 6% by eliminating some non-manufacturing positions. The restructuring will affect approximately 50 non-manufacturing jobs in Normal, according to a Rivian spokesperson.

 

“This week, Rivian realigned our workforce to key business priorities, including ramping vehicle production and manufacturing.” “While members of our manufacturing operations team in Bloomington-Normal were not affected, the reorganization affected just over 50 non-manufacturing positions at our facility,” said Rivian plant communications coordinator Maura Freeman. The normal plant employs approximately 6,000 people. Since 2020, when the company began producing its first electric trucks, SUVs, and Amazon delivery vans, the vast majority of those jobs have been added.

 

Freeman also stated that Rivian plans to hire another 1,500 people this year and begin a second shift for production in Normal.

 

According to a list of job postings on the company’s website, Rivian is still accepting applications for more than 160 positions at the Normal plant.

 

Prior to the restructuring, Rivian employed approximately 14,000 people across the country.
