Life at Fortum
Our people are changemakers – taking an active role in driving change for a better future. Our competencies in developing clean energy solutions are needed, and what we do matters.
Our culture helps you succeed
Open leadership is at the heart of our culture. It's a model that aims to provide our employees with the tools and confidence needed to build the energy sector's future actively. A central principle of this model is the supportive approach based on individual strengths. We think that by trusting and believing in people and taking care of their well-being, we can expect even better results from them. For us, three pillars crystallize this approach: we believe in each other, want the best for each other, and expect the best from each other.
We invest in your well-being
We provide our employees with generous health & well-being benefits. A holistic approach to well-being is part of our culture and is visible through our global Energise Your Day program. The program's target is to increase the overall awareness of well-being and encourage all our employees to maintain and develop their well-being. In addition, through our collaboration with Hintsa Performance, our employees have a broad offering of services available to them, including personal coaching, workshops, and mental & physical breaks.
Flexibility is here to stay
We want to provide flexibility in our workplace. A combination of remote and office/onsite work is suitable for many of our employees working in a regular Fortum office environment. Our teams have the flexibility to find the most optimal solutions for them to secure high performance, professional development, and personal well-being. For us, it is important to make all our employees feel included, regardless of where they do their work. With the possibility of remote working and flexible working hours, you will have more time to focus on yourself and the people that matter the most.
Set your direction to grow
You will set the direction for your own development, and we will support you on this journey. Our employees have dozens of online and in-person pieces of training available in different areas, such as hybrid leadership or 360 feedback development. We are testing and seeking new opportunities to use technology to further build the learning experience, for example, through nano-learnings. Fortum Talks are open events for all employees who want to know more about current business topics, such as hydrogen or renewables. We actively promote job rotation and short-term assignments to grow professionally and expand our employees' view of the business. Our leadership & coaching programs are targeted at different employee groups, such as Navigator, which is our future leader development program.
