Sony Pictures has made the decision to close it F&A shared services centers in Poland and Philippines. Sony's new CFO, who came on board about 15 months ago, is rationalizing the business as other major studios, like Disney and Warner Brothers, have done. The service center in Gdynia will be completed closed by June 2019, and all F&A services will be taken over by CapGemini. Approximately 250 employees in Poland and 400 in Philippines will lose their jobs. CapGemini will be providing these services from bases in India.
“The captive model in Poland and Philippines has been very successful”, said Michal Gryglewski, Director of the Gdynia site. “We've been operating 9 years, and we've developed a strong team of well-trained people. This industry has been consolidating, and this is part of a larger restructuring.”
The choice to outsource these services to CapGemini is most-likely a move to prepare the overall company for a sale or merger with another industry partner.
While Gryglewski is clearly not pleased with the decision, he's also not worried: “Our team should be of strong interest to any other SSC investors expanding in Gdansk/Gdynia”.
