The management of Aesio, the Aéma group's mutual health insurer, has announced to cut 387 jobs, not renewing some 200 fixed-term contracts, and offering geographical mobilities to 444 employees, as part of a reorganisation aimed at breaking even by 2025. As employees could refuse geographical mobilities, the number of job cuts could reach a total of 831. Aésio, which was formed from the merger of several regional mutuals in 2021, needs to transform itself to restore its competitiveness. The job cuts will involve both voluntary departures and redundancies. The mutual will also be reducing its number of offices, keeping 12 administrative sites instead of the current 44. In total, these measures should save more than €90 million, or 20% of the €460 million in annual operating costs. The reorganisation should be agreed with the trade unions in January 2024 and the plan will start at the first quarter 2024. 

Update 20/12/2023

All of Aésio Mutuelle's representative trade unions have come to an agreement and have signed the company agreement defining the outlines of the job protection plan (PSE). Aésio is preparing to cut 274 jobs instead of the initial 387.
