    Continuous Conversations: Our feedback and development culture at Munich Re

    When it comes to performance management, we at Munich Re strive to create open and honest dialogues that are ongoing and meaningful, that provide multi-directional feedback, and which drive collaboration across the globe. Our Continuous Conversations approach has no formal processes or ratings. Instead it relies entirely on our colleagues’ active engagement. We believe Continuous Conversations will help us build on our strengths and will encourage self-responsibility across roles and disciplines. Performance happens every day and the Continuous Conversations is in tune with this reality. For our future-oriented, innovative approach to Continuous Conversations, we received the HR Global Excellence Award 2020 as well as the InnoWard 2021 of the German insurance industry.

    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.

    Accelerated Development - Boost your leadership skills

    A career does not have to be straightforward – even a step sideways can offer unexpected development opportunities. As a Munich Re employee, you benefit from local and global Accelerated Development programmes and learning at all career levels. This allows you to shape your professional career according to your individual ideas and goals. We are happy to support you. 

    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 is an Accelerated Development option for aspiring leaders who want to become first-level people or thought leaders or who are already people or thought leaders and aspire to reach the next level of leadership impact. The programme lasts between 12 and 24 months and supports participants individually. The development is based on the 70:20:10 model of learning and focuses mainly on building your experience in the workplace. You can expect new professional challenges and tasks (70 percent), learn from more experienced colleagues (20 percent) and participate in traditional training (10 percent). Throughout the programme, a manager and business mentor are there to support you
    Hydrogen is a Munich Re programme that puts high potentials in the driver’s seat of their career. It cultivates individuals with the drive and potential to take their career to the next level and increase their impact on our business. While requiring a high level of participant engagement, it offers customised development and new levels of visibility on a worldwide platform. Most importantly, it puts you in charge.  

    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.
