Energie AG’s goals as an employer seeking to embrace responsibility are:
- Further development of employer branding with a special focus on promoting diversity (such as women in technical professions)
- Personnel and management development, as well as high-quality apprenticeship programmes
- Ensuring access to qualified personnel in the long term, in particular by positioning the Company as a family-friendly employer
Acting as a responsible employer
Energie AG has, in particular with regard to marked transitions in the work and life reality of its employees, positioned itself as a crisis-safe and responsible employer by establishing additional flexible work time models, creating the technical conditions for remote working, working from home etc., as well as providing demand-oriented childcare options for employees.
An elaborate procedure executed by an economy magazine in cooperation with three prominent online platforms determined Austria’s 300 best employers 2022, with Energie AG taking the first place in the energy sector as well as the nationwide overall ranking thanks to the measures taken.
In a study of the attractiveness of employers in Upper Austria conducted by “Market Institute” on the basis of a representative survey of Upper Austria’s population in gainful employment, Energie AG Group took the third place in the overall rating as “best employer 2021”. Energie AG took the first place among all rated companies in Upper Austria in the subcategories crisis safety and job safety and was awarded the associated quality badge.
The Group’s apprenticeship programme secures a comprehensive practical training for young talents, who rotate through different business areas with relevant career opportunities, and is a preventative measure in light of the general shortage of skilled workers. Dedicated trainee programs are intended to give external target groups an excellent career start at Energie AG Group. Scholarships and other financial assistance options that explicitly target female technicians contribute to the promotion of diversity and equal opportunity.
The implementation of sustainability objectives requires committed and satisfied employees. As an important employer in the supply regions, Energie AG offers attractive and secure jobs. Flexible work time models, high quality work equipment, and a wide range of training and professional education options are important contributions to this goal.
