Information and communications technology company PinkRoccade hopes to have a plan by the end of 2004 for the centralisation of its Dutch operations as of the beginning of 2005, the company's chief executive officer Henk Bosma said on 13 October 2004. The reorganisation of PinkRoccade activities in the Netherlands will include some 200 job cuts, but the exact amount of the workforce reduction has not been established yet, Bosma said. PinkRoccade will try to offer alternative job opportunities within the company to the redundant employees, however forced layoffs are not to be ruled out. Bosma expects the reorganisation in the Netherlands to continue for a period of six months. PinkRoccade is now also in close negotiations with the company's workers' council. As a result of earlier reductions in 2002, the total number of PinkRoccade employees dropped by 1,292 to 8,147. In 2003 PinkRoccade recruited 360 people, but cut 1,071 jobs, thus bringing the total number of its employees to 7,436. The company has not recruited any employees in 2004. The number of PinkRoccade employees stood at 7,117 at the end of the first half of 2004.
