As part of a major reorganization, Finnish Wärtsilä is working to cut 1,000 jobs, as the company announced in relation to its annual report. Part of the plan has now been completed in Finland, a region set from the beginning to receive the largest layoffs, at 200 employees. According to Wärtsilä, negotiations have led to 142 employees quitting their jobs.

Since the beginning of the restructuring process the number of employees has been reduced, and it will continue to shrink in the near future due to natural resignations and retirements. As such, the target of 200 will be reached naturally, says the company.
