Continuous Conversations: Our feedback and development culture at Munich Re
Continuous learning gives you an edge wherever you stand in your career
The people who join Munich Re are keenly aware of how the world around us is changing – and how these changes affect endeavours in society and business. It’s their understanding of how the world works that sets us apart from the competition. Because it fuels our exploration of insurability and our drive to create better and innovative risk-related solutions.
We have built an environment that thrives on lifelong learning, career ownership and is not limited by borders or cultures. We provide our people with the tools they need to drive their careers.
For me, working for Munich Re means working in an international environment. I had the opportunity to work and live in India for more than two years. It was a highly rewarding experience. I learnt how to put a plan into action and collaborate with colleagues in a foreign work and cultural environment.
Learning alongside your career
I would absolutely recommend LinkedIn Learning to my colleagues. You can completely tailor your learning, to hone in on the exact skills you want to develop, whether that is technical knowledge or soft skills. Better staff will lead to better results for our business.
Digital School: Global access to learning opportunities in the area of digitalization
Digital technology is transforming the workplace, especially at a company with a business model as driven by data and science as ours. The Digital School, our global digital learning platform, offers all employees worldwide access to a rich selection of learning and development opportunities.
The education units in our Digital School teach about working and leading in a digital environment. They familiarise you with digital technologies and data analytics. We encourage all employees to explore e-readings and videos, join classroom learning, and participate in webinars. Formats come in convenient durations, from up to 15 minutes to 4-8 hours. You tailor your investment to your needs, areas of interest, and schedule.
Data Analytics Curriculum: Lifelong learning keeps all of us ahead of the game
Leveraging data and algorithms plays – and always has played – a vital role in the business model of Munich Re. Digitalisation gives us ever-richer data sources from an interconnected economy and new ways of leveraging them for analysis. It allows us to take full advantage of data to broaden insurability.
As a Munich Re employee, you have full access to the Data Analytics Curriculum to broaden your digital horizon. You tailor the course load to your schedule, development objectives and skill level. Formats range from talks and webinars to e-learning courses. A selection of qualification units, created in close cooperation with top universities, award you a certification upon successful completion.

Accelerated Development - Boost your leadership skills
How do you envision your career?
Do you want to take on more responsibility, acquire additional qualifications, expand your leadership skills? Or instead of responsibility, would you rather deepen your specialist knowledge, build up new expertise or broaden your perspective? At Munich Re, we give you the freedom to decide for yourself how you want to shape your work with us. This is what sets us apart as an employer.
Thanks to our high-quality internal Accelerated Development programmes Oxygen, Hydrogen and the Group Management Platform, as well as a lively learning culture, we are able to regularly fill our management and expert positions from within our own ranks.
Oxygen – 12- 24 months programme for aspiring leaders
Hydrogen – 36-months programme for high potential leaders
Group Management Platform (GMP) for future leaders
Our Group Management Platform, GMP for short, is home to a vibrant network of 150 executives and top talents from our businesses around the globe. Bridging generations, the GMP connects our leaders of today with leaders of tomorrow. It’s a springboard for networking, learning and growing together as a global management team unified in its diversity.
Cooperating with leading business schools, this booster programme for leadership skills comes with comprehensive career coaching – and significant added value. GMP has emerged as a powerful tool for succession planning and staffing positions in senior management and on the Board.
The combination of classroom work, real-life leadership challenges, coaching and mentoring is designed to impart leadership skills in a stimulating and supportive environment. GMP participants praise the opportunity to expand their relationships into the group. Meeting colleagues from all over the world gives perspective – it creates awareness and opens new ways of thinking about what’s possible and necessary for Munich Re today and in the future.
Hydrogen provided me with the platform to get visibility outside my business unit by involving me in strategic projects. All this ultimately brought me to my new role with Great Lakes Insurance SE.
