Proximus confirmed Thursday its "restructuring" plan, which will entail the loss of 1,900 jobs and 1,250 new hirings, so as "to develop from a telecommunication company to a digital service provider," it said via the Telecom company’s communiqué.
Over the next three years, Proximus plans to recruit 1,250 new employees, including 750 additional posts for the extension of its ICT activities in its various subsidiaries, as well as 500 additional profiles in the new digital areas within Proximus SA.

Moreover, the company "will also consider the possibility of further reducing its staff of about 1,900 employees over the next 3 years, in line with the planned workload reduction."

Proximus said to begin today “talks with its social partners to define a new social framework and achieve further cost reduction."
