Fostering a culture of mutual respect

We offer flexibility

We understand that every situation is unique and deserves flexibility and support. Axpo’s people enjoy part-time arrangements, flexible hours, opportunities to work from home and help with childcare costs.

We connect our people

We know that the best solutions come from combining different viewpoints. Our networks for female executives and junior staff across all functions encourage discussion, development and mutual support. We also help our people to connect informally through Axpo’s Culture Club or Sports Club.

We value gender diversity

We’re a proud member of Advance, the leading business association for gender equality in Switzerland. In addition, we work closely with SVIN, the association for female engineers.

We celebrate diversity

We celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, as well as International Women’s Day. Marking occasions like these is just one way we take a clear stance on these thought-provoking topics.

We commit to fair recruitment

We recognise the role that diverse teams play in our company’s success and performance. That’s why we strive to be inclusive at every stage of the hiring process. Our recruiters get regular training to safeguard an unbiased and fair recruitment process for all.
