Axpo’s strategy recognises the growing role of digital innovation and the need to remain adaptable in a changing environment. We’re excited about the promise of fewer routine tasks, less administration and lower error rates as digitalisation and automation take off. At the same time, we’re committed to helping our people develop skills for the future. As our business transforms, we support you on your own personal growth journey. Structured learning, informal development and practical experience prepare you – and Axpo – to address future challenges successfully.
"Everyone learns differently, which is why we offer a range of teaching formats. We feel that you should be able to learn at any time, in any place, and using any technological device."
"Knowledge residing in our business is an intangible asset - one woth an increasing value. Sharing of knowledge benefits all of us: we learn, develop and improve our performance. At Axpo, we foster knowledge exchange and learning from others."
At Axpo, we share a wealth of knowledge. Benefit from the experience and know-how of smart and experienced colleagues in diverse teams across the Axpo Group, and exceed yourself through inspiring and challenging projects and tasks. Special initiatives like Lunch & Learn, (Un)learning, Social Learning and Mentoring complement the range of professional development opportunities offered at the Axpo Academy and through LinkedIn Learning.
"I see changes as opportunities for daily learning and professional development. Personally, I avoid routines and stimulate myself to grow by searching for opportunities to create added value in my environment. In my opinion, intrinsic motivation is the ultimate foundation for learning. This is why I encourage my employees to pitch their ideas and to pursuit their preferred challenges."
"When I first joint Axpo, I didn’t have any energy knowledge and I really appreciated when other Axpo employees took the time to explain the new industry to me. At Axpo, people are very happy to break down their area of expertise for their colleagues and you can learn a lot from them. I personally encourage my team to also get new learnings and insights from outside Axpo and share their knowledge with colleagues from across the group, since cross-organizational knowledge sharing and inspiration is very important for us."
"I feel that being curious about new challenges is the best approach and it motivates me to keep learning new things. I want to know how things work, but also how they can be done better. Axpo encourages and supports this thirst for knowledge in a variety of ways. For example, I was able to benefit a lot from the mentoring program, the 360 ° feedback or targeted training offers. I can develop myself further and this had a positive influence on my career at Axpo."
Individual experience makes up around 70% of learning. Working with different colleagues, you’ll encounter specific tasks, projects and challenges that deepen your knowledge and strengthen your skillset. Axpo’s innovative unlearning approach helps you combine this practical experience with interdisciplinary exchange to accelerate your personal learning journey. Unlearning also creates a safe space in which to discuss topics that can trigger uncertainty, enabling us as an organisation to reflect on current thought patterns and shift perspectives.
Peer-to-peer knowledge transfer is an important pillar of Axpo’s learning strategy. Regular digital and on-site events, platforms and other spaces enable knowledge exchange within the organisation. We also invite thought leaders to share trends, business challenges and experiences.
We foster the exchange of skills, knowledge, and understanding between generations, cultures, and different business areas. Axpo invests in a mentoring programme that supports you at every stage of your career. Mentors share their valuable expertise and get insights from reverse mentoring in return.
At Axpo, you’re in control of your learning and development journey. We empower you to define goals and acquire skills that benefit you, our organisation and the sustainable future of energy. We understand that preferences vary so we offer a range of formats that cater to different learning styles.
