Note 12: Restructuring

In 2011, we continued to restructure our business to meet the needs of our customers and deliver our company strategy. We are committed to supporting our employees during such reorganizations. We do this in compliance with legal requirements and, where applicable, in consultation with employee representative bodies. We strive to ensure clear and ongoing communications, transparent selection processes and, in many cases, support in the transition from work to work, which can include training and out-placement. While restructuring is a business necessity, our responsibility as an employer stretches to those who unfortunately have to leave our company. The company has announced a performance improvement program, which will have implications on our employee numbers.
