Diversity is one of our hallmarks – and
one of our success factors. This particularly concerns our
employees. We understand diversity as bringing different ways of
thinking, mentalities, experiences and specialised knowledge
together through lively interaction. This interaction creates the
basis for an open corporate culture in the spirit of partnership,
which lives tolerance and fairness, creates a climate of trust and
offers possibilities for individual development.
Our personnel strategy follows the principles of equal
opportunity: we have zero tolerance for any kind of discrimination
whether on the basis of age, gender, origin or otherwise.
As a globally operating Group, we are committed to the topics of
gender, age and internationalism.
For this reason, we are dedicated to increasing the number of
women in managing positions to 25% at Munich Re Munich by 2020,
among other things. The mix of generations in our workforce
enriches professional life, promotes mutual learning so that all
employees can benefit from the cooperation.
Internationalism defines our business –
after all, we serve over 5,000 clients around the world. That's why
67% of our employees work at our international locations with a
large number in North America. On the other hand, 9.3% of our
employees working in Germany come from other countries. This has a
positive influence not only on day-to-day business, but also on
international customer relations. We strive to expand this
