“The aim of this new way of working, which we call Better Ways of Working, is to enable us to provide better digital customer experiences and to react faster to our customers’ wishes and needs that are constantly changing.
Our customers increasingly request and use our digital solutions, and our new initiative is thus an essential part of our work on being a modern bank that customers find easy to use,” says Lars Alstrup, Lead of the Better Ways of Working initiative.
As a result of the new way of working and modernisation of our IT systems, 156 positions - primarily coordinating roles – will become redundant. While we have found other positions for most employees, 63 employees across Business Development and IT (40 located in Denmark and 23 in Lithuania) will leave Danske Bank.
“We are sorry that we have to say goodbye to a number of skilled employees, but this is a natural outcome of our ongoing work on becoming more efficient, including working in other ways. We will, of course, do our best to help the affected employees on with their careers in the best possible way,” Lars Alstrup says.
