METRO PROPERTIES is proud to be certified Top Employer Germany 2020 - Jürgen Schwarze, CFO

The annual international survey conducted by the Top Employer Institute recognizes leading employers around the world; those that provide excellent working conditions for their employees, promote and develop talent at all levels of the organisation, and strive for continuous improvement in HR processes.

"Our sustainable business success is based on the expertise and passion of our employees. For METRO PROPERTIES, the recognition by the independent Top Employer Institute is therefore both a confirmation and an incentive to offer our diverse and international teams attractive working conditions with first-class training and career opportunities", says Jürgen Schwarze, CFO METRO PROPERTIES.

In addition to employee work conditions, the Top Employers Institute also evaluates HR management methods like for example METRO’s performance and talent management processes and practices, e.g. Results & Growth, as well as various employee development programmes such as Next Generation Finance, or HR Master class. Also learning and development resources as METRO’s Corporate House of Learning have an effect on the score. Above that cultural elements as METRO’s Guiding Principles, its Employer Value Proposition, Corporate Responsibility activities, a diversity and inclusion strategy as well as the employee engagement survey METRO Voice it! and the available internal communication channels such as the quarterly global Townhall Meetings, our social intranet “United” or employee magazines, e.g. the “MORE Magazine”, are included in the evaluation.

METRO PROPERTIES creates value on the basis of future-oriented, professional asset management and sustainable, value-enhancing project developments within our real estate portfolio as well as strategic investments and transactions.
