Professional growth

Career-long learning

Ørsted has become one of the fastest growing energy companies in Europe. We are experiencing rapid growth and we continue to have high ambitions. As our people are our most important catalyst for our future growth, we significantly invest in employee development and relentlessly strive to become even better – as individuals, teams and as a company. We do this by learning new things. Every day.

70:20:10 approach to learning

We have built our approach to learning on the 70:20:10 model. 70:20:10 is based on evidence that approximately 70% of learning and development happens through experience, around 20% through others, while about 10% comes from training.

Ørsted Academy

Our Ørsted Academy offers a wide variety of customised talent and development programmes that offer employees professional and personal growth at every career stage. Our three talent programmes, Galaxy, Apollo and Columbus, support high potential talent in developing capabilities to succeed at the next level.

The Apollo programme has helped me understand the importance of taking time to reflect on my actions and the learning I get from it. It has not only given me an increased self-awareness, but also a better understanding of others and their actions, which I feel is both beneficial for my daily work and my private life.

Performance management

In addition to our core programmes, we have regular talent reviews where you are encouraged to talk openly about your personal development. Managers are also assessed regularly to ensure continuous employee training and development in support of the “learn everyday ethos”.

At Ørsted, there is a huge capacity to learn from some of the best people in the business. Daily, I have exciting and innovative tasks and great colleagues who share my passions, and I appreciate the emphasis from my managers on development. I feel that I can really grow as an individual – both personally and professionally, and that I constantly have opportunities for learning.
