Sanoma Corporation, Press Release, 30 May 2014 at 9:00 CET+1

As part of the strategic redesign communicated on 31 October 2013 Sanoma has decided to reorganise its finance function. A major part of the Finance Shared Services will be outsourced to Genpact, a global leader in Business Process Outsourcing. Sanoma aims to improve its flexibility and cost efficiency, adjusting Sanoma’s finance organisation to the changing operating environment.

Genpact is a New York Stock Exchange listed company with more than 64,000 employees focusing on running business processes and operations. The company services many of the world’s leading companies in a wide variety of industries including banking, life sciences and media.

The reorganization of Sanoma’s Finance Shared Services will result in fewer layoffs than initially estimated. After concluding co-operation negotiations with unions in Finland and the Works Council in the Netherlands it is now clear there will be 30 redundancies in Finland and 20 redundancies in the Netherlands; the initial estimate was a total of 65 redundancies.
