Walmart is cutting hundreds of corporate positions and asking some workers to relocate from smaller offices to larger locations, according to Supermarket News that refers to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

In addition, the company is asking remote workers to begin spending most of their time in the office, the newspaper reported.

The article did not specify exactly how many positions were being eliminated and how many workers were being laid off.

A spokesperson for the retailer was not immediately available for comment.

Walmart employees in some smaller offices in Dallas, Atlanta, and Toronto, are being asked to move to other “central hubs,” such as the company’s corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark., as well as offices in Hoboken, N.J., and Northern California, the Journal reported, citing people familiar with the company’s plans.

The article also said that Walmart will continue to allow employees to work remotely part of the time, but they must spend most of their working hours in offices.

Walmart recently said it plans to shutter all 51 of its Walmart Health centers, most of which were in Florida and Georgia. It was not clear if the reported job cuts were related to that initiative.
