Two-thirds of the cuts will be absorbed by natural employment fluctuations, the financial giant said in a statement on Tuesday. A consultation process is being implemented. Employees affected by the move can submit proposals on how to avoid potential redundancies, limit their number and mitigate their consequences.
The group's steering committee will take a final decision in August. New positions will be created at the same time, the statement said.
This restructuring should enable PostFinance to increase efficiency, exploit savings potential in a targeted manner and reduce costs.
