Insecurity in units

Bradesco is currently converting many branches into business units, which reduces security and monitoring costs. Within 12 months, the bank closed 242 branches and opened 92 new business units, according to data reported by Sindicato dos Bancários de São Paulo. By not having a revolving door and a guard, the model is unsafe.

Marcos Amaral criticizes the model.

The lack of security elements shows a disregard for the protection and lives of the bank’s employees and customers, which puts them at risk in such situations. This agency model only makes the work environment worse. So that such situations do not happen again, it is necessary that Bradesco review the coordination of this banking unit and invest in the safety of its employees and customers, which is the greatest asset of the bank.
