Bayer cuts French jobs

Bayer CropScience is cutting 200 jobs at its French business, while offering 130 new jobs in the country. The company expects internal moves to the new positions and will offer early-retirement packages to offset the number of people retrenched. Bayer expects that under these conditions, only 10-15 people will have to leave the company as a result of the job cuts. The downsizing will affect "especially those [workers] very close to the markets", such as sales and marketing staff. Bayer says that the move is to help "maintain our competitiveness and the sustainability of our business". The company points out that the French market has been "changing" and it aims to "adapt to the evolution of the business and of its clients" through the job cuts.
