The number of DB Group employees worldwide has decreased slightly as of June 30, 2020. The driving factors behind this decrease were the cessation of the Arriva Rail North Franchise on March 1, 2020 (about 6,300 FTE), and the global decrease in DB Schenker’s workforce for economic reasons, partly as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The number of employees in the integrated rail system, on the other hand, grew as the recruitment campaign continued in the first half of 2020 despite the Covid-19 pandemic. There has been a significant increase in the number of employees in particular in maintenance and construction project fields as well as in the operations at DB Netze Track. In addition, the number of employees in Group management and at the service providers (area Other) has increased, especially at DB Systel, for the development of innovative subject areas. DB Long-Distance, DB Regional and DB Cargo also recorded an increase in the number of employees, particularly in operating areas, due to the recruitment of employees from the external labor market and the employment of vocational trainees who have completed their training.
As of June 30, 2020, the share of employees outside Germany was about 36% (as of June 30, 2019: about 38%).
