Cooperative bank OP Financial Group announced its plans to restructure the Corporate Banking and the Insurance Customers units in Finland. After employer-employee negotiations, the decision is planned to make 300 job positions redundant in the two centralised business units that have a total workforce of 3,000 employees. At the same time, the company promised the creation of 185 new job positions. The restructuring event aims at adopting self-directed practices for these two units, which need to be more agile.

The company plans to use internal restructuring processes for savings amounting to €18 million. To reach this goal, the company started a new round of employer-employee negotiations in October 2019.
