InBev is to cut jobs at its global headquarters (GHQ). The brewer announced today (13 October) that it is looking to reduce its employee-base at its base in Leuven, Belgium, following the completion of an effectiveness study of structures and processes.

"The proposed organisation aims to create clear responsibilities and to eliminate overlapping or duplicated processes and activities across functions, as well as across Zones and GHQ, taking into account the right match of employee profiles with the new organisational requirements," InBev said in a statement.

The implementation of the proposed plan would lead to a collective dismissal of a maximum of 60 people, on a current total of about 400 positions.

The company hopes, however, that a minimum of 15 dismissals could be avoided by transferring employees to new positions within the newly proposed organisation structure.

"To this end, and based on the study's findings, consultation with the social partners will start as of today, as well as consultation of each of the global functions," the statement continued. This is expected to take a few weeks, InBev concluded.

Earlier this year, InBev revealed plans to outsource its Information Technology infrastructure with the loss of 270 jobs in 25 countries.
