Migros supports the ongoing development of its employees with a wide range of training, continuing education and support programmes.
With blended learning and digital courses, Migros encourages autonomous learning among its employees.
To facilitate Migros’ evolution into a learning organisation, the project "Neue Lernwelt" was continued in 2021. With blended learning and digital courses, Migros encourages autonomous learning among its employees. Staff of all departments in all Migros companies can learn from any location in their own time and at their own pace. Migros thereby improves the employability, commitment and career prospects of its employees.

To help Migros achieve its strategic goals, a comprehensive talent management system (TMS) was introduced in the previous year. This ensures the personal and professional development of employees and increases the long-term mobility of high-potential employees within the Migros Group. The goals of employees are tied to those of the company by means of clear objectives and skill-specific development measures. Active dialogue between staff and managers, combined with a strong feedback culture, facilitate the continuous development of employees. Structured talent conferences and cross-company succession planning enable more key positions to be filled by internal candidates.
Migros’ commitment to training and education within society is second to none.
