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.

Culture of trust

Our culture helps you succeed

Open leadership is in the heart of our culture. It's a model that aims to provide our employees the tools and confidence needed to actively build the future of the energy sector. 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 wellbeing, we can expect even better results from them. For us there are three pillars that crystallize this approach: we believe in each other, we want the best for each other, and we expect the best from each other.

We invest in your wellbeing

We provide our employees generous health & wellbeing benefits. Holistic approach to wellbeing is part of our culture and visible through our global Energise Your Day program. The target of the program is to increase the overall awareness of wellbeing and encourage all our employees to maintain and develop their own wellbeing.  Through our collaboration with Hintsa Performance, our employees have a wide offering of services available for them, including personal coaching, workshops, and mental & physical breaks.

Flexibility is here to stay

We want to provide flexibility in our workplace. 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 wellbeing. For us, it is important to make all our employees feel included, regardless of where they do their work. With the possibility for remote working and flexible working hours you will have more time to focus on yourself and 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 trainings available in different areas, such as hybrid leadership or 360 feedback development. We are testing and seeking new opportunities to use technology to build the learning experience even further 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 as a way for professional growth and expanding 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.
