Working Environment

The future is hybrid
"New Work" at METRO AG

Working at METRO means acknowledging change. And change did come with the last three years that basically rattled all former known models of working and collaboration. And since it is inherent with our culture and business, we embrace change and make the best out of it.

It is not yet a fixed new working culture than it is a "work in progress". But since we believe in a successful process and outcome, we all work together on our future ways of working and principles connected to it.

Hybrid Work

You want to work on your project or task more productive and you do that much better and more concentrated outside the office? The free choice of work location (within GER) allows you on up to three working days to select the best environment for your work. You decide together with your team how you work together best.

Which days remote and which days together on campus? Also a team decision! We believe the combination of remote and face-to-face work benefits both, you and your team.


We adapt to your individual life model, because with us you can do almost any job part-time!

This makes it easier for you to combine family and career, realise a long-awaited project, look after your family members or simply have more time for yourself. Together we decide what your part-time work should look like.

Job Sharing

Managing a team with 20 hours per week? This is possible with our job sharing model.

You share the leadership role with your sparring partner at a percentage that can be customised to the wishes of all parties. This gives you the flexibility you want to perfectly combine your working life with your private life
