The central importance of employees for EVN and its stakeholders is underscored, not least, by the high priority given to the area of activity “responsible employer”. EVN is therefore committed to creating a positive working environment for all employees.
The EVN Group employed an average of 6,830 employees during the 2015/16 financial year. This workforce is characterised by substantial cultural diversity as a result of the Group’s international expansion. In order to maintain EVN’s identity and brand promise toward its stakeholders in all countries based on the same high standards applied in Lower Austria, key values were introduced throughout the entire Group: ensure, encourage and enable. They represent an important element of the major instruments that define the corporate culture, e.g. the managerial mission statement and the feedback and orientation sessions (FOS).
