Sanofi is now continuing its operations on the ultimate site of its international competence centre in Budapest. Initially, 200 persons will assist the European and North American Sanofi units in seven languages from the centre. The headcount, however, is planned to be increased to 350 colleagues by 2022 in the leading French pharmaceutical giant's newest Hungarian unit.
Sanofi considers the new office not as a simple SSC, but as a Centre of Excellence, which will perform tasks with specifically high added value. The new office, which currently has 200 employees, supports the Sanofi subsidiaries in seven languages in the field of accounting, HR and finance, and is at the same time working on further improvements in business data management and process optimisation.
With the new centre Sanofi will have five premises in Hungary, giving work to over 2,000 people. The new unit will be one of the group's two global facilities of this kind, and is planned to extend its activities to other business lines and regions in the future.
