Health & Safety at Work

Migros practises systematic occupational health management (OHM) and has been awarded the Friendly Work Space label. The label underlines the Migros Group's commitment to a healthy working environment and healthy employees.

Migros meets its legal responsibility to protect its employees as part of the group-wide solution (GWS) for "occupational health and safety", which ensures a systematic implementation of employee protection. It is checked on an ongoing basis by qualified specialists and continuously refined and improved. In addition to the working environment and working conditions, individual health-related behaviour is also supported.

The reintegration of sick or injured employees is also part of the OHM system. Reintegration support is offered to disability pensioners as well.

Fourteen companies of the Migros Group carry the Friendly Work Space quality label. They are the ten regional Cooperatives and a further four companies from the Migros Group. The group assessment for Cooperative Retailing was successfully confirmed in 2019.

About 70% of all Migros Group employees work in a company that has been awarded the Friendly Work Space label.
