In Q1 2024, Sleep Cycle is launching initiatives aimed at improving operational efficiency and unifying the team around a new strategy, which will be launched in Q2. The biggest organizational change entails phasing out the Stockholm office. All Stockholm-based employees, including remote workers, will be offered the same jobs at the Gothenburg HQ. These employees will receive relocation reimbursement packages.
“As we prepare for the launch of our new strategy, we firmly believe that unifying our team under one roof is a major success factor. This will enhance collaboration and foster a stronger, more cohesive and cross-functional work environment. We’re thrilled at the prospect of bringing everyone together at this vital juncture,” said Erik Jivmark, CEO.
The move is not part of an articulated cost-cutting program, although consolidating Sleep Cycle’s two offices enables the company to bring all functions closer together, creating a more efficient organization and saving money.
“When fully realized, we expect to generate annual savings of around SEK 5m. Permanent savings would include cost line items such as the office lease, overlapping functions and related expenses, including travel. The plan may also incur additional costs in the form of relocation reimbursement and expenses for temporary resources during the first half of 2024; the cost impact from these changes are expected to be neutral on a FY 2024 basis. All in all, we see a long-term upside when it comes to overhead,” says, Per Andersson, CFO.
“Sleep Cycle enjoys a strong position in its market space and we are confident that these strategic changes will help propel us toward our mission: to improve global health by getting people around the world to sleep better. During Q1, we’re focusing on team cohesion and crafting a new strategy. And during Q2, we’re going to execute on this strategy. I’m looking forward to embarking on this new chapter of our journey, and delivering even greater value to our customers, employees and shareholders,” concluded Erik Jivmark.
