Management consulting giant Accenture Finland said it has ended employer-employee negotiations and that 66 of its workers were leaving the company.

Sixty-five employees had agreed to leave the company in voluntary arrangements, according to the firm.

When the company initiated redundancy talks in mid April, it had plans to cut its workforce in the country by up to 200.

At the time the firm said it was downsizing in order to meet a rapidly-changing operating environment.

Accenture Finland, a branch of the global consulting giant Accenture, has offices in Tampere and Helsinki and employs about 1,200 workers in the country. Worldwide, the firm had about 450,000 employees last year.
