Employee relations

At Vattenfall, we believe that our people are the key to the company's success. We listen to our employees, and encourage and value a diversity of people and ideas.

Employee Engagement

Our employees' voice matters. We conduct a two-yearly employee survey, My Opinion, to find out what our employees think about Vattenfall. My Opinion gives employees an opportunity to share their opinions about everyday work, managers and the company's culture.

Vattenfall uses the survey results to improve the work environment, leadership and ultimately company performance. Best practices are shared and become a useful tool for management.

Employment Conditions

Vattenfall offers competitive salaries and benefits. We strive to be an employer that rewards strong performance, identifies potential and offers flexible solutions to facilitate employees' work and to promote work-life balance.

Diversity and Equal Opportunities

Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect – Vattenfall has a zero tolerance attitude towards discrimination. All employees should have the same opportunities regardless of their age, ethical and cultural background, gender, religion, sexual identity or disability.

We are convinced that a diverse workforce increases our competence base, brings new opportunities and enriches our business.

Focus on gender balance

We work in a male-dominated sector. Therefore, we have various programmes in place to address the gender imbalance. These programmes aim to:

  • Encourage female students to choose engineering
  • Strengthen the image of Vattenfall as an attractive employer
  • Promote female colleagues and increase the number of female managers
  • Offer flexible working conditions
