Our culture

An inclusive team

 

Talent is diverse by nature. We want to build diverse and inclusive teams, because we truly believe that different perspectives will strengthen our ability to be innovative and deliver on our mission.

We take pride in recruiting the best person for the job, whatever their demographic, background, or beliefs.

 

“Diverse perspectives help us thrive. We count on new perspectives to deliver on our mission. That’s why we’re building a company that runs on ideas provided by all kinds of people from all around the world.”

 

– Nicholas Creswell, Global Head of Talent

We expect all our employees to


  • see diversity as a strength 
  • be curious about the inclusion of diversity, discuss it with others, and get involved  
  • be inclusive by contributing to an open-minded and supportive culture in which different perspectives are welcomed and leveraged, and where it’s safe to speak up.  

“What I truly appreciate about Ørsted is the diverse culture and the possibility to work with people from all over the world. It really makes Ørsted a world-class company."

 

- Jason Kao, Permitting & Agreements Manager

Flexibility in your work life


We believe deeply in supporting a sustainable working life. This means not only encouraging high performance, but also providing the conditions for our employees to nurture their well-being – both at home and at the office and through the changing demands of their lives.   


Flexible working conditions  

We support our colleagues with flexible working arrangements wherever possible. This may include the flexibility to work from home, leave early, or come in late, if it's agreed with your manager and allows you to perform your role. If you require formalised flexibility in your working life, such as part-time hours, feel free to discuss this with us during the hiring process.  

Making healthy and happy the norm

 

We believe that people who thrive at work are happier and healthier. And vice versa: We believe that well-being is an important enabler for creating great results in your job.  

To keep our employees feeling good both at work and at home, we created Ørsted Life – a holistic health programme focused on improving our physical and mental well-being.  

Our staff associations arrange professional, social, and cultural events where you can meet and share good times with your colleagues.  

A workplace for innovators

Innovation is in our DNA, and it will play a big part in our future. We’re a dynamic company in a dynamic industry and we’re aware that what makes us a market-leading company now is not necessarily what will make us successful in the years to come.  


In collaboration with Accenture, US-based Fast Company, one of the world’s leading business media outlets, ranked Ørsted as the 19th best company in the world in 2020 when it comes to creating conditions where innovators can flourish.

“We want a culture that creates the best possible breeding ground for new ways of thinking, and an environment where everyone, regardless of their job title, is encouraged to be curious and innovative. At all levels of the company, I see people striving to continuously do things better, which helps drive the business – and the green agenda – forward.”

 

-  Henriette Fenger, Cheif Human Resources Officer

We’re always on the lookout for new methods and technologies that improve our solutions and our way of working.

We continuously challenge ourselves and each other to push the bar higher and ensure that we continue to take the lead within our industry.  

A high degree of trust is important when it comes to innovation. We seek to learn from our failures and dare to challenge the status quo.
