SFR to cut 1,700 jobs in France as part of digital plans

Altice Europe’s French telecoms operator SFR plans to cut up to 1,700 jobs or about 11 percent of its staff this year in France.
SFR said the departures would be on a voluntary basis. “These departures would take place in 2021,” SFR said in a statement.

The job cuts are part of SFR’s strategic plan that takes into account new digitalisation habits which have resulted in a 30 percent drop in the number of clients visiting its shops.

The telecoms operator said it was holding talks with staff representatives over the planned job cuts.
