...and there's more than one way to skin a cat- take a look at Symrise right now. They were stuck with excess numbers of employees; restrictive unions and underperforming business...recipe for a disaster eh?
well, they just managed to con the unions to accept a policy of out-sourcing jobs instead of the obvious axe hav�ng to fall at their own expense..ie looks good but in the end the same result will take effect but that will be someone else's headache...I call that smart..so IFFy take heed and start the same game to get your bottom line in line.
Now, about "IFFy".....I think they would not know whom to "outsource" as there is so much deadwood around that are considered to be "important", even if they know nothing and do nothing. Their management has no handle on how they perform as they themselves have no clue about the F&F business.
The knowledgable have already been dismissed.Who is managing the place??? Easy: the perfumers!!
This is precisely their problem. All the deadwood need to do is memorizing a couple of chemicals and that already inmpresses top management.
"Wow, cyclacet is a great chemical", "I believe that our own damascone saves the company a lot of money".
"Let's add some di-hydro mercinol, that will do the trick".
WHO WOULD BE ABLE TO AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH THAT????
Mention an IFF chemical and you have snowed them. No one would be able to ask more detailed questions about the chemicals, as both parties do not know anything and it would result in a loss of face all around....." monkey see, monkey do"....the blind leading the blind.
