CBG was formed when the Bank of Ghana recently fused uniBank together with Sovereign Bank, The Royal Bank, The Beige Bank and The Construction Bank.
Some 1,700 staff of the bank have been laid off.
In a press statement issued to clarify media reports about the bank’s human capital, CBG said it was “right-sizing”.
Below is the full statement:
CBG ADDRESSES MEDIA REPORTS ABOUT HUMAN CAPITAL CHANGES
The Management of Consolidated Bank Ghana Limited (CBG) has taken notice of reports in the media about massive lay-oﬀs to be eﬀected by the bank, as part of eﬀorts to implement the Purchase and Assumption transaction it undertook following the recent distress of five (5) banks.
CBG informs the general public that it has established an integration roadmap with the objective of right-sizing the branch network and rationalizing headcount amongst others. Whilst this may involve some reduction in headcount, management is taking steps to ensure that this does not impose undue hardship on its staﬀ.
A core part of this integration and rationalization exercise is career training programs for all staﬀ who may be exited as a result. CBG is also finalizing a plan for aﬀected staﬀ to transition to other economic models which will enable them provide essential outsourced services to the bank where appropriate.
CBG is an indigenous bank with a strong balance sheet, well-positioned to protect the best interests of our depositors and staﬀ. We look forward to an enduring partnership with all our stakeholders and to building an entity that will transcend this generation.
