The Finnish branch of management consulting giant Accenture has plans to cut its workforce in the country by up to 200 employees.

The company said it's downsizing in order to meet a rapidly-changing operating environment.

Accenture Finland management is scheduled to begin employer-employee negotiations with worker reps on 24 April.

The company currently employs around 1,200 people in Finland. Globally, there were nearly 450,000 employees working at Accenture as of last year.

The firm's managing director in Finland, Frank Korsström, said the company is committed to further developing its business in the country.

"We will continue to recruit consultancy and technology experts to meet our customers' demand," Korsström said.
