The French cosmetics group L’Oréal wants to set up a single organization for the Benelux in the Amsterdam area, which will outline the strategy for those countries. As a result, 125 jobs will be lost at the headquarters for Belgium and Luxembourg in Berchem-Sainte-Agathe. In addition, each country will keep its own teams.
100 of the 125 employees who lose their job in Brussels will be able to work in this new organization in Amsterdam. Brigitte Bekaert, communication director at L’Oréal, assumes that many employees will move: “We have many young employees, we are also an international company. We think that a lot of people will be willing to move to the Netherlands. That is possible. be a first international experience. “
Bekaert is aware that such a move is not self-evident for everyone. “Of course that raises questions today especially if you have to move with your family. But we will do everything we can to support them in this, so that they really feel like starting this new adventure with L’Oréal.”
