On 23 June 2017, the German insurance company Allianz Deutschland announced it would cut 700 full-time jobs in Germany by the end of 2020.

Early 2017, Allianz already cut 570 jobs through partial retirement, 120 of which were implemented in Germany. The administration of the accident insurance departments will be concentrated in Berlin and Munich. The sites in Leipzig, Hamburg and Stuttgart will close. Additionally, the health insurance department in Berlin will reduce the number of employees on site. 

According to Allianz, the restructuring is necessary due to ongoing digitalisation. Several standardised tasks which had been managed by employees will be automated.

Allianz Deutschland employs 29,000 staff members in Germany. As of June 2017, some 900 employees work at the affected departments.
