Whole Foods Under Fire For New 'Scorecard' That Has Left Some Employees In Tears

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Whole Foods employees are not happy. 

The grocery store recently implemented a series of changes built on “chastisement, punishment, and retribution” and it's not going well. Employee morale is at an all-time low, and rapid turnover is coming down the pike.

The problem seems to stem from the new order-to-shelf (OTS) program, which apparently involves a...get this...108-point checklist on which employees are scored. 

According to employees who spoke anonymously with Business Insider:

The OTS program is leading to sackings up and down the chain in our region. We've lost team leaders, store team leaders, executive coordinators and even a regional vice president. Many of them have left because they consider OTS to be absurd. As an example, store team leaders are required to complete a 108-point checklist for OTS.
