UPDATE 1: Few staff to lose jobs in OSN move




OSN will close its Bahrain office within the next six months, according to a report by a local paper.

Staff will be either relocated to the UAE office or made redundant.

All service facilities will go on as usual and none of our highly-regarded customers will face any problems, said an anonymous official quoted by the Gulf Daily News.

No details have been revealed regarding the extent of any redundancies.

Its certainly not something to be happy about its a sad move, they added.

When contacted by DPME.com, OSN revealed that widespread job losses are not expected.

The majority of the staff in the Bahrain headquarters will be offered positions not only in Dubai but also throughout the OSN network of offices throughout the region, said a spokesperson. OSN will also work with KIPCO and MAWARID [owners of the company] to provide more job opportunities across their respective business networks.

The two companies declared that both the Dubai and Bahrain facilities would remain open following the merger.

Since the merger, OSN had operated two headquarters, one in Bahrain and one in Dubai. After extensive evaluation, the board decided to consolidate both Bahrain and Dubai operations into a single headquarters in Dubai, said the spokesperson.

Speaking at the time of the merger OSN CEO Marc-Antoine dHalluin said: It has been a delicate exercise to negotiate this merger. It will take us at least a year-and-a-half to properly integrate our platforms. The goal is to integrate from a content and technology perspective. Staff lay-offs have not been discussed as yet.

Rumours of a consolidation of infrastructure and subsequent redundancies continued however.

Orbit operated in Bahrain from 2003 after relocating from Rome.
