Health and work-life balance

To cope with the challenges of a demanding and dynamic work environment, our people need a sound work-life balance that maintains their quality of life in the long term. That is why we offer a health-oriented work environment that includes stress management in addition to medical care.

Health and safety

The health and safety of our employees, business partners, suppliers and visitors is important to us. We want to create safe workplaces that are conducive to good health – accident prevention is a priority. Effective health and occupational safety management contribute to improving quality and productivity in the workplace as well as increasing employee job satisfaction.
Health and wellbeing

Health and well-being

We devote a great deal of attention to health and well-being. In many countries, Deutsche Bank offers company medical care or direct access to highly ranked hospitals and medical facilities. In all regions, employee assistance programs are made available, covering work and personal matters, to complement medical care. On business trips, our employees have access to a full range of medical services and emergency care provided by the world’s leading service provider.

Prevention: Preventative healthcare and online health portal

We place special importance on preventative healthcare, which includes offering influenza vaccinations, staff events with a health focus and company sports events.
In Germany we are developing a new online health portal, which will summarize the support we offer in the areas of health, work-life balance, well-being and nutrition, in addition to our advisory services. The new portal will encourage employees to take responsibility, but will also underscore our responsibility as an employer to encourage a healthy work-life balance.

A family-friendly company

In 2017, Deutsche Bank was re-certified by the charitable Hertie Foundation as a family-friendly company for the fourth time since 2007. The certification is awarded to companies that provide exemplary assistance to their employees in striking a balance between their work and family life.

Balance between work and family life

Striking a balance between work and family life is crucial for an employee’s motivation and commitment. Deutsche Bank offers employees a wide range of options in this area to balance the requirements of the workplace with their personal and family needs.

We provide more than 380 childcare places near workplaces in major global hubs. In Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States, an emergency ‘family service’ is provided as a stop-gap solution for periods not covered by long-term childcare arrangements. At our Asian locations we provide a number of family-related supplementary benefits. Deutsche Bank offers a comprehensive range of advisory services during parental leave as well as workshops and other services which help staff when they return to work.

Stress management and work-life balance

To protect our employees’ mental health, we offer an introduction to stress management techniques via online training modules and classroom training. We support flexible working schemes that allow employees to organise their time themselves. These schemes include part-time and mobile work options as well as the possibility of working from home, which help our people to strike a healthy balance between their work and private life.

Returning to work after parental leave

More than 90%

of female employees in Germany return to work after parental leave, and an increasing number of male employees are making use of paternity leave.
