Diageo Hungary picks up jobs from Africa
Hundreds of jobs at the East Africa Breweries Limited hang in the balance after parent company Diageo moved its consultancy and key functions out of Kenya.
The British multinational has outsourced all its financial, accounting and analytical work to Bangalore, India and Budapest, Hungary. The services are undertaken by Diageo Africa Business Service Centre which has announced a review and reorganisation that will significantly alter its structure. The Nairobi-based centre is one of five Diageo global shared service centres and the only one in Africa. It runs back-office processes for the firm's finance, supply, human resources, sales and marketing teams.According to insiders, EABL is to lay off about 150 employees in human resource and finance shared services in December and March 2020.
EABL said in early August that business services requirements and processes across Diageo Africa are changing and as such, Diageo will be conducting a review of the centre to determine where best to locate technical services roles for Africa in either Europe or Asia.
“This will lead to the transition of roles to other service centres. The review and change process will take place over a six-month period and conclude in March 2020,” the management said. “EABL is directly talking with all its employees in the ABSC who may be affected and will be providing regular updates through the review process over the coming months,” it added.
According to the management, the move is a Diageo global business services process which does not affect EABL core functions.
