BEAUTY company Liz Earle has today (Wednesday) denied rumours of mass redundancies and suggestions Liz Earle herself had left.
It was reported on Twitter by a beauty industry blogger, Caroline Hirons, that 200 people had been made redundant and Liz Earle had been fired, but the company dismissed the 200 figure and categorically denied its founder had left the business.
However, a spokesman admitted the company was carrying out an organisational review.
"Liz Earle Beauty Company is currently reviewing the infrastructure to ensure world-class resources are in place for future growth expectations.
"A consolidation of roles, improvement in working processes and effectiveness are key priorities. The business objective is to continue to drive for growth and optimal business performance," said the spokesman.
"As part of the organisational review there is a consultation process underway and is expected to conclude in the next 30 days.
"Liz Earle Beauty Company continues to evolve and contribute to the Island economy," he added.
It was revealed earlier this week the company had pulled out of plans to create 500 jobs by expanding its site at Ryde Business Park.
