Filed under: Plants/Manufacturing , Toyota , Earnings/Financials Toyota’s decision to move its US headquarters from its longtime home in Torrance, CA, to Plano, TX, was one of the biggest stories in the automotive industry this spring. With several months since the announcement, more details about the plan have leaked out. It seems that pulling up stakes could mean an even larger shakeup in the Toyota workforce than first thought. According to Automotive News , Toyota intends to hang onto around 50 percent of its workforce in the move to the Lone Star State . However, even that figure might be optimistic. According to an unnamed insider speaking to AN, there is a fear the actual number could be closer to 30 percent. For comparison, Nissan retained about 42 percent of its workers in its move from California to Tennessee. The actual percentage making the move is a mystery because Toyota is still rewriting its job descriptions under a single set of guidelines. The changes affect benefits, bonuses and the reporting structure, according to Automotive News , and employees’ reactions could play a big role in who decides to go. According to an unnamed worker speaking to AN, the wait is hurting morale.
