Welcome to the new METRO. Welcome to the future.

Our employees form a unique team. Inspiring. Open. Friendly. Self-assured. Progressive. These are the characteristics that describe the values we embody, who we are and how we work together every day.

We always think one step ahead of the others. We are constantly looking for new challenges. This is how we create the conditions for innovation and generate added value for our customers. Our new headquarters, which are due to open in 2018, express the unique METRO spirit in three-dimensional space. Be1 creates space for innovation, creativity, commitment and exchange.

The corporate headquarters of METRO AG will be redesigned


We take the well-being of our staff extremely seriously. Our 'GO' health campaign has been developing health initiatives and providing nutritional advice to employees since 2004. At our headquarters in Düsseldorf, for instance, employees can choose from a broad range of sports and health options – from the gym to massages and all-day health events.


There are three ‘METRO Sternchen’ children’s day nurseries at our headquarters in Düsseldorf. Over 240 children can be looked after here – all day if required. The children are supervised by qualified nursery school staff, who speak both German and English to them. We can guarantee nursery places for all single parents.

Carers for your family

METRO is aware of how important it can be to look after older family members. We help our employees find the right care for their family members by providing information and contact details of care facilities.

Flexible working models

METRO offers modern working models. These include trust-based working time, part-time models and arrangements for working from home. This gives our employees the freedom to manage their own time.

Holiday scheme

For children between the ages of six and twelve, we organise an attractive annual holiday scheme at our headquarters in Düsseldorf in collaboration with an external partner. In recent years, activities have included the 'Kölner Spielecircus' (a Cologne circus project) and rehearsals for a musical, which the children performed at the end of the holidays.


Our 'Zukunftspaket' (future package) helps employees across the group build up a supplementary private pension – with benefits that exceed the usual standards in the industry.
