Working at Munich Re
Highly qualified and motivated staff are key to the success of our business. And for a global company like Munich Re an international approach to human resources management is essential. Our corporate and leadership culture strongly geared to performance and business requirements has a major positive impact on the way our staff approach change, performance and training.
There are currently about 45,000 people working at Munich Re: over 11,000 in reinsurance, about 4,000 in Munich Health, roughly 30,000 in primary insurance and about 800 in the field of asset management (figures from 2012). All of them contribute to our success through their skill, performance and dedication. That is why we are committed to investing in their development and provide all staff with equal opportunities and top-quality working conditions. We strive to recruit the best staff we can and equip them to deal with the global business of opportunities and risks. The fact that our Munich location enjoys a consistently low staff turnover rate of some 3% shows just how much our employees like working for us.
Attractive employment opportunities
Munich Re offers professionals, university graduates, students and school-leavers attractive employment opportunities and career prospects. We are there to support our staff from day one. Together, we draft an individual induction plan designed to provide orientation and outline career goals. The same principle applies to all of our staff. By regularly agreeing objectives and appraising performance, we promote individual professional growth and enable staff to enhance their individual skills.
At home all over the world
The international nature of our operations and the wide variety of areas we cover are what make Munich Re such an interesting company to work for. Whether it is information technology, genetic engineering, aerospace, machinery construction or the FIFA World Cup, there is virtually no area of the economy or daily life in which Munich Re is not actively involved. Clients throughout the world put their trust in our financial strength and the competence of our staff.
Family and career are compatible
Flexible working hours are a key competitive factor and the hallmark of an attractive employer. Munich Re aims to actively balance company interests with the individual needs of our staff. Part-time schemes ensure optimum flexibility and help staff to combine family and career.
Equal treatment is firmly anchored in our Code of Conduct
In our human resources work, it is the people we concentrate on. We not only adapt to the current demands of the labour market but also understand how to meet the changing needs of our staff. Equal treatment is an inherent part of our corporate culture.
