KAUPPALEHTI REORGANISES ITS OPERATIONS
Kauppalehti Oy will begin statutory personnel negotiations affecting the
company's whole personnel excluding those working for Information Services and
Digital Development. Negotiations affect 129 persons in total. The company
estimates that the planned changes in organisation may have an impact for
personnel and may reduce the need of workforce by the maximum amount of 9 full-
time work years.
The negotiations are due to the rapid changes in the operating environment of
the media companies, and the anticipated further changes during the coming
years. Kauppalehti is the forerunner in the field of digital media and aims to
be the winning media also in future. The transformation into digital media
business requires flexible operating practices and even stronger
approach. Due to this, the company is planning a reorganisation and changes into
the ways of working and processes to make them more efficient and competitive
than before. The planned changes have an impact both in the editorial department
and in the sales and marketing departments.
