Finnish telecomms group Elisa Corporation said on Wednesday (19 April) that it had concluded personnel negotiations at its Business Customers unit.

The negotiations concerned the reorganisation of the Business Customers unit, as well as staff cuts in the unit, excluding the customer advisors and team managers in contact centre services.

As a result the number of employees would be reduced by 112. In addition some 70 employees had accepted Elisa's redundancy support solution before the statutory negotiations began.

The staff cuts are part of the previously announced efficiency-boosting measures for the period 2005-2007.
