Denmark -Danske bank plans to cut 3,000 jobs -November 1, 2012

Danske Bank says it is responding to a recession and burst housing bubble in its home market. The bank announced job cuts, raising its target for staff eliminations by 1,000 from its previous goal of 2,000 cuts. The reduction will be found through closing bank branches and a greater reliance on automated and online services. Customers will only be able to receive personal consultation ‘when it is needed’.
