Commitment to our employees

Our 219,678 employees stand for the success of METRO GROUP and its sales lines. It is their commitment and the decisions they make on a day-to-day basis that ensure we create value for our customers and society. In terms of our sustainable corporate governance, we see it as our duty to create and maintain an attractive, fair and safe working environment. As such, our objective is to value the individuality of our employees, encourage their diversity and strengthen their personal responsibility. In this way, we support them in implementing our strategy successfully and sustainably.
