Helsinki reorganisation begin

The University of Helsinki has launched individual assessments in a move that is likely to see 1,200 employees lose their jobs by 2020.

In a statement on 12 January, the university said that employees will have to re-apply for their jobs through an internal recruitment process. The university employs about 8,000 staff, with about 1,200 redundancies expected.

The aim of the exercise is "to cut costs, remove duplication, and to use employees skills in a more diverse way," the university said. It added that an update of the situation was expected to be published on 27 January.
