Additional Information

On 20 December 2017, the financial service provider Deutsche Bank announced to cut 1000 jobs as a result of its integration of Postbank. According to Deutsche Bank's CEO, cuts are necessary as Deutsche Bank aims to save €900 million in costs. However, in October 2017, Deutsche Bank announced that there will not be any operational terminations until 2021 related to the Postbank integration. Therefore, the job reduction will be implemented in the form of a volunteers programme, which will offer severance payments or early-retirement programmes to employees who are willing to leave the company. The programme will end in October 2018.
