What matters to you matters to us

How you work, when you work, where you work should be up to you. We believe in individual definitions of career, success, and work-life harmony. Flexible, personalized, appreciative, and lifestyle-driven: Our approach to benefits promotes individuality and purpose. To best support you in shaping your own way of working and living, we combine global and regional benefits in a way that helps you live your best life wherever you're based.


Build a healthy and satisfying life, inside and outside of work


At Bayer we strive to leverage science for a better life for everyone – to improve people’s lives with solutions to the greatest challenges of our time. And that includes supporting the physical and mental wellbeing of the dedicated people who work with us to build these solutions. BeWell@Bayer is a Bayer-wide initiative thoughtfully designed to enhance the health and wellbeing of Bayer employees and their loved one in five key areas.

Tailor work conditions to your needs


At Bayer, we embrace flexibility. Time off for you time, family time, and time to learn and explore are vital for us as human beings. Our work flexibility empowers you to work when and where you’re at your best. Your options include non-traditional work schedules, from part-time to a compressed work week to job sharing. Volunteer opportunities, sabbaticals, and talent swaps are designed to inspire and enrich your work experience.

At Bayer being successful at work also means having the necessary trust and flexibility. In HR we strive to live that flexibility in our day to day and enable flexibility with our individual solutions. While going on assignment and working in another country for a period of time is a great option, we also strive to enable virtual support where possible.“

Shape your workplace experience

Being able to choose when and where you work is an integral part of our workplace experience. Whether you want to work on-site or from home, alone or in close proximity to your teams, we offer enabling digital technology and a range of working locations near you. Open to everyone, our innovation spaces are great places to get together, brainstorm, have lively discussions, and develop disruptive ideas. For our global “Next Normal Office Concept” all employees were involved helping shape our future way of working in a new office landscape resulting in a comprehensive and impressive package reflecting the changed demands and expectations after the Corona pandemic. However, there is no off-the-shelf solution, but rather locally adapted implementations according to the requirements in each country.

How we organize our workplace is a critical element to creating an environment that allows our people to thrive – especially when our work depends on strong team dynamics and personal interactions. We envision a work environment that is coordinated and collaborative enough to make our teams effective, but flexible enough to give our people freedom.”

Leadership means responsibility with a purpose

To promote your personal and professional growth, we encourage you to make the most of our open feedback culture and exchange feedback with team members, peers, and leaders. We support reverse mentoring and continuous learning. Leadership at Bayer emphasizes leading with purpose – to inspire, influence and guide people in a way that helps them reach milestones together. That includes listening to team needs, facilitating team efforts, and communicating ideas, goals and expectations with clarity. To help you take on responsibilities in a leadership role and be the best version of yourself, you have access to coaching, training, and leadership academies.

Rewards that work for you wherever you are

People at Bayer work in 83 countries all over the world. Every country protects its workforce in different ways. So, when it comes to benefits there is no one-size-fits-all. That’s why we have designed a benefits experience that is flexible, lifestyle-driven, personalized, appreciative, and meaningful. We combine local benefit plans with a variety of Bayer-wide programs and core protective benefit plans, such as financial protection, pensions and savings plans, AD&D insurances, and travel insurances.


We want you to have a clear understanding of and easy access to all benefits available to you. To this end, we use state-of-the-art digital tools and design global, regional, and local benefits with transparency and personalization options.
