Additional Information

BNP Paribas Fortis announced its intention to reduce its workforce by 1800 employees by 2015.

According to the management, the reduction will be implemented through natural attrition and the non-replacement of retiring employees. As a result, the company will only recruit 200 new employees per year to replace 800 to 850 departures.
