John Lewis cuts 11,000 jobs in strategic turnaround plan

UK retailer John Lewis expressed confidence that the it would return to profit this year. This optimistic outlook comes amid the company's strategic plan to cut up to 11,000 jobs as part of its ongoing turnaround efforts.

Last year, John Lewis faced a substantial setback, incurring a £234 million loss. The retailer is contemplating reducing its staff by at least 10% over the next five years. In addition to job cuts, the company is actively working to trim £900 million in costs from its operations.
