KB Kookmin Bank to Launch Early Retirement Program

KB Kookmin Bank announced that the labor union and management of KB Kookmin agreed on the early retirement scheme, which is aimed at scaling back its payroll by about 5,500. The targeted employees will include 4,500 ordinary workers and 1,000 senior members including executives who will be subject to the wage peak system. The bank will start accepting applications from May 18, 2015. Apart from the ordinary salaries for the coming period ranging from 27 to 36 months, each outgoing staff member will be paid KRW 24 million ($21,800) severance. The Bank announced it would carry out a full-fledged early retirement program, similar to the one late 2010 when about 3,200 workers left the commercial bank via a voluntary redundancy program. Meanwhile, KB Kookmin promised it would rehire a certain portion of the outgoing staff as nonregular workers.
