InBev, the leading global brewer based in Belgium (Leuven), announces its intention to create a European Shared Service Centres, and to outsource its Business Systems and Application Services to various European countries. The implementation of this centralization would be considered in the first part of 2006 and could lead, in summary, to about 360 jobs reductions covering 5 European countries. At the same time, it is InBev´s expectation that 107 jobs would be created in the Czech Republic and 188 in Hungary. The company will now consult its social partners and start negotiating with outsourcing partners for these services. InBev will ensure that employees have the opportunity to continue their career in the supplier´s organization.
