PHUKET: Laguna Phuket has announced that it is undergoing a significant departmental restructuring and downsizing, but the company declines to confirm or deny reports that as many as 300, or 10 per cent, of its associates have left or are in the process of leaving.

According to a press statement issued today (July 31), Laguna Phuket currently employs close to 3,000 staff.

“Like most companies, Laguna Resorts & Hotels periodically conducts comprehensive reviews of its operations and, when the need arises, implements necessary measures to realign its business goals and objectives. These exercises allow the company to adapt to the constantly changing dynamics in the Phuket tourism industry,” the statement continues.

“As a result of such a review, Laguna Phuket Golf Club will soon undergo a major renovation of the entire 18-hole golf course in phases and consequently some staff members have taken the opportunity to participate in the company’s attractive early retirement program.”

According to one undisclosed source, 14 staff members in the marketing and communications department were offered a “substantial severance package”.

The Gazette contacted Robin Wilson, director of marketing communications and events, who declined to provide additional information.

Other than marketing and communications, it is not yet clear which departments will be affected in the restructuring.

According to the press statement, the Laguna “Wedding Chapel will continue to offer its services and will be managed by Angsana Laguna Phuket. The operations of Quest and Laguna Tours remain unchanged.

“Destination Marketing will continue to perform its normal functions with a more streamlined operational structure and strategies. Signature events, such as the triathlon, marathon, etc, will continue to be annual activities of Laguna Phuket. All these departments and events remain an integral part of Laguna Phuket.”
