Responsible employer

We think and act long-term

You can rely on us. We look after what our customers entrust to us, and over a long period. We plan for the long term – in our business, on environmental and social matters and as an employer.

For us, it goes without saying that we must act responsibly with our customers’ assets and personal data. Transparency matters to us: we disclose what we do and why we do it. We comply with the high standards of the German Corporate Governance Codex. Furthermore, we have our own Code of Conduct which defines high ethical standards for work undertaken by employees, sales partners and managers.

As an insurer we enable people to shape their lives without fearing the future. We also strive to smooth the way for people with our social commitment by helping them to take responsibility for themselves and others, and thereby have a stake in society.

Commitment – an ERGO tradition

ERGO and its brands promote a large number of social projects and health initiatives in various countries and support cultural and scientific endeavours. Many employees support social projects with a financial contribution or actively take part themselves, for example by raising funds or donating blood. This commitment has a long tradition which we will continue in the future.

Sustainable business is our guiding principle, which applies to both the economic success of our company and to our ecological and social commitment. We make continuous efforts to reduce our energy consumption and CO2 emissions, for example by using modern air conditioning technology. We invest in sustainable capital investments and also offer this option to our customers through MEAG’s sustainable funds. Our experts assist companies in avoiding environmental damage, and we promote the use of renewable energies by means of innovative insurance concepts and through the operation of solar systems.

Attractive employer

Our 50,000 employees and sales partners have long-term prospects. We offer them a wide variety of tasks in an international Group with ambitious goals – and the opportunity to grow through these challenges. We support the professional development of our employees by means of individual training and systematically prepare them for new tasks.

Plain and clear language is not only important to us when communicating with our customers. Within the company too, we strive to achieve an open and fair exchange at all levels of the hierarchy. Reliability, respect and a spirit of partnership characterise our internal relations in the same way as they do concerning contacts with customers or our business partners.


As life is not all about work, we enable our employees to reconcile professional and family demands with our flexible working time models. ERGO has been awarded the “work and family” certificate by the German non-profit Hertie foundation – a reflection of our family-friendly personnel policy.
