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.

Prevention: Preventative healthcare and online health portal
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.
