Workforce & Staff Movement
In the reporting year, the workforce of the Migros Group shrank by 6.6% to 99'155 employees. This was due to the sale of Gries Deco Company GmbH (including Depot CH AG and Depot Handels GmbH) and Magazine zum Globus AG. The personnel numbers in the strategic business units Cooperative Retailing and Commerce showed a mixed picture. Compared with 2019, personnel figures remained almost unchanged in in-store retailing but were up again in the online business and health segment.
The workforce abroad shrank as a result of the above-mentioned company disposals.
Due to company disposals, the number of full-time positions fell by 5.7% to 71'297 in the reporting year.
Consolidated employment growth amounted to 13.6% (previous year: 14.4%), despite a sometimes unfavourable economic environment and the fact that various sectors were hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Workforce by strategic business units
Cooperative Retailing is very important to the Migros Group. It employed over two thirds of all staff in 2020.
The gross fluctuation rate increased to 15.7% (previous year: 14.9%). Transfers between Migros companies made up 2% of this.
