Personal and professional development

Developing our company starts with developing our people. We offer our employees a variety of programs worldwide for personal and professional development.

Hydro employee

Whether you’re an operator, specialist or leader, you get the opportunity to develop your career and build your competence. 

The most important learning and development happens on-the-job with leaders and peers, but we also offer a wide range of professional development programs and courses aligned with organizational needs. In our Hydro Academy, our employees can browse through our internal course catalog to discover training that is relevant to their development needs, including local and global classroom training, webcasts, e-learning, access Leadership library, and more. 

Shaped by you through involvement and empowerment 

My Way is Hydro’s performance and development process, used by all employees. The aim is to make sure our employees are able to utilize their competence to perform at their best – today and in the future. Through a structured dialogue between leader and employee the following questions will be clarified: 

  • What is expected of me? 
  • How am I doing? 
  • How can I develop my competence?  

We believe that employees that are involved, have ownership and feel empowered are more content and perform better.
