Development of employee numbers of METRO GROUP (graphic)

During the reporting period, METRO GROUP employed an average of 196,540 (2014/15: 203,773) full-time equivalents. This is a decrease of 3.5 per cent from the same period of the previous year. The majority of our employees work outside of our home market of Germany. In Western Europe (excluding Germany), Eastern Europe and Asia, we had 125,705 full-time equivalents, 5.5 per cent less than during the same period of the previous year. This decline is primarily due to METRO Cash & Carry’s withdrawal from Vietnam. In Germany, the number of full-time equivalents increased slightly to 70,835 (2014/15: 70,815).

During the reporting period, our METRO Cash & Carry sales line had an average of 101,380 full-time equivalents. This is a decrease of 6.3 per cent from the same period of the previous year. Media-Saturn employed an average of 58,396 full-time equivalents in the reporting period, an increase of 0.8 per cent over the same period of the previous year. At Real, the number of full-time equivalents fell by 2.8 per cent to 27,281. The number of full-time equivalents in the Others segment decreased by 0.4 per cent to 9,483.
