part of our DNA
Where we all meet
Fridays are when most of us return to the office after being away on-site all week. We hold regular meetings across the office, where we discuss recent business developments, exchange news and best practices, along with less formal matters, such as get-togethers.
Every office has its own 'traditions'. Fridays involve office lunches, after-work drinks and similar perks…it's a particularly fun day. Some offices have initiated sports or cultural clubs. Bring your ideas, drive and passion and help shape office life. Be part of our DNA!
A fundamental value, not tokenism
'Diversity' is often thrown around – a quick fix buzzword. Not here. We've been fundamentally diverse right from the start, active in cultures, languages and markets across the globe. This is due to Roland Berger's uniquely European origins – unparalleled in a consultancy firm of this size.
Great ideas and new perspectives are inspired by diverse teams from a variety of backgrounds, enriching us with new insights, interests and ways of looking at things.
It's not just a men's world
We can't reach our full potential by failing to tap in to over half of the world's talent pool. Increasing the representation of women at Roland Berger is top on our list of priorities, including our CEO's. This is no small matter. We are committed to hearing you and unleashing your potential.
We hold recruiting events exclusively for women, where students can meet and network with our female colleagues. You'll receive insights on their experiences and have the chance to build relationships.
For new starters, we establish contacts among female colleagues and establish networks of mutual support.
We are committed to real change, led by women, so that we become a better organization. Long-term, together and at every level.
Diversity is much more
You may be advising on future trends in augmented reality, establishing an entirely new economic zone, or developing pipelines or an international airport. These are ventures at the forefront of business. No two days are the same. Every situation is different and each client unique. Just like you.
Open minded teams integrating people with diverse talent, nationalities, genders, religious or sexual orientations are key for our success. At Roland Berger, we foster an environment of respect where all colleagues feel welcome and accepted how they are.
Our LGBT network "Just be" is a global and caring community for LGBT* colleagues to facilitate professional exchange and mentoring. It connects colleagues from all offices around the world and is a forum to discuss questions and concerns. If you have any questions, our HR colleagues would be pleased to establish a contact to a member of our LGBT network. We will of course handle your request with utmost confidentiality. Be authentic. Just be.
With most consultants being male, it can be difficult finding a role model. But, over my career, a patchwork of people have given me the guidance and support I needed to create my own style.
Tailored to your needs
'Work' and 'life' aren't two neat concepts to be determined just like that. The reality is more intertwined and subtle. Yes, it's true: consultants work hard and often long hours. They also find their work highly stimulating and fulfilling.
We want you to be happy here. Long-term. That means growing with you and supporting your needs. We can find a solution together for your changing needs, be it a sabbatical or flexible work schedule. Let's talk.
You have big plans. We admire that and value it. It's what makes you a rich, engaging person to be around. You want to travel, commit to volunteer work, learn a new skill or put yourself through a new challenge. We can offer you a one to six month sabbatical. Let us support your dreams.
Many of our employees work part-time, across all levels of the company. We want to offer you flexibility, so that you remain happy here, long-term. Part-time work is a great solution, especially if you have a family. If you are not onsite, you can also work from home. Come and talk to us and we'll find a routine that works.
Our success depends on developing the individual, which we believe extends beyond the organization itself. We believe in ideas that have a wider social impact. Our colleagues are key to our charitable work. We'll support your volunteer initiatives, helping you develop your network and reach, as well as providing you with expertise.
We can also donate time. Whether you're involved in local projects or developmental aid further afield, come and speak to us about our social fellowship programs and sabbaticals.
I tutor students in math, German and history. It's rewarding to see the kids' sense of achievement when they learn something new. I enjoy giving back and it offers me a new perspective, too.
I wouldn't have been able to do it without Roland Berger supporting and believing in me. The company's commitment to corporate volunteering means a lot to me.
Foster the spirit
Teamwork, having fun together, staying healthy. Our sports program is fun, varied and exotic. We hold beach volleyball competitions, for example – a relaxed, informal way to spend time with your colleagues from all over the world in a beautiful setting.
Our soccer teams are pretty impressive, too, competing locally and even internationally. Of course, there are more everyday fitness options. We offer reduced-rate gym membership in some cities and many of our offices have in-house studios or sports clubs.
