Change in Deutsche Bank – level 1

18-07-2019 07:00

Deutsche Bank is an international bank. It has employees all around the world. The bank wants to organise itself differently.

It wants to lay off 1/5 of its employees. Deutsche Bank wants to do this in three years. That is around 18,000 jobs. By 2022, the bank plans to have 74,000 employees. The bank is doing this to make more money.

Difficult words: international (everywhere around the world), employee (a worker), lay off (take a job away from someone).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
