Suitable Offers for Every Situation in Life Suitable Offers for Every Situation in Life



For more than two decades we have continuously expanded our activities around the theme of work-life balance. Today, Commerzbank offers its employees targeted offers for every situation in life.

Flexible working time models

Commerzbank’s flexible working time models provide our employees with the opportunity to bring their working hours in line with their current life situation. Our employees manage their working time individually through various part-time models and sabbatical leave offers.

Managers working part-time

Depending on the living situation, even managers have the desire to reduce their working hours. Commerzbank offers two working time models nationwide which are specifically tailored to the needs of part-time managers: our "Deputy model for managers” (shared professional lead only) and “Top Sharing” (shared professional and disciplinary lead).


We support parents with extensive advice and referral services regarding childcare, education and school issues. In Germany, we have created flexible, company childcare facilities. For the exceptional case, but also in the regular care for children from 0 to 12 years.

Individual subsidies for child care, lectures and workshops on the subject of children's school and education round off the offer.

Parental leave

Continuing your career after taking a family leave? At Commerzbank, this is no problem. Our return guarantee after parental leave goes beyond the legal requirements. Not only do we facilitate employees’ re-entry, we also provide the opportunity to maintain contact with the bank during the parental leave. Through the "Keep in Touch" programme our employees are given a part-time contract during their parental leave for 10 or 20 percent of their normal working hours.

Care of relatives

We support our employees nationwide with offers for the care of relatives. In addition to the so-called care modules, this also includes free consulting and placement services and possibilities for exemption that go beyond the legal requirements. Information and workshop offers for nursing staff as well as subsidies for paid external nursing training events are also part of the offer.

We have already received several awards for our commitment and for many years:
