BELGIUM: InBev outsources IT, jobs to go
InBev is to outsource its Information Technology infrastructure with the loss of 270 jobs.
"Having thoroughly reviewed different business cases for both internal and external sourcing models, it has been determined that external sourcing offers the best combination of cost efficiencies, technical performance, opportunities for employees, and flexibility for future growth," the company said in a statement yesterday (23 February). "InBev therefore confirms its intention to outsource its IT infrastructure on a global basis.
"270 InBev employees, working in 25 countries around the world, fall within the scope of this proposed outsourcing."
The company is in negotiations with selected suppliers regarding the transfer of services. "During these negotiations, InBev is attempting to ensure that as many employees as possible have the opportunity to continue their careers in the suppliers' organisations," the company said.
A date for a final decision was not disclosed.
