SpareBank 1 SMN: Optimise distribution and enhance operational efficiency

Share

SpareBank 1 SMN is to concentrate staff in larger locations that bring together all the group’s business lines, while six smaller branches are to be closed. Staffing is to be reduced by a total of 100 FTEs including support functions at central level.

The enhancement programme One SMN is designed to realise synergies between the group’s business lines in addition to increased digitalisation, more efficient work processes and ambitious cost reductions. There is a substantial income potential to be achieved through stronger integration across the group enabling an even better customer offering in terms of accounting, estate agency and banking services. The aim is to achieve a NOK 400 million increase in profit.

SpareBank 1 SMN will optimise operations by means of staff reductions of about 100 FTEs by the end of next year. Downstaffing will take place mainly at the bank as well as in support functions across the entire group.

SpareBank 1 SMN’s ambition is to deliver even better services to its customers through stronger collective action both in support functions at central level and in reaching out to the customer. SpareBank 1 SMN is to concentrate staff in larger locations in which all business lines in the group will be co-located in regional centres, while six smaller branches are to be closed down. These measures will be carried through in 2020 and 2021.
