Further information

To help TenneT meet the challenges of the future and drive the energy transition, we need to re-imagine how we harness and nurture the talent of our people, as well as how we seek the new talent we will need to adapt and grow. Adaptiveness and innovation will be central to fulfil our role in the green energy future, and our success in this will depend on the talent within our organisation. As such the People Unit now has a different and essential role to play, putting ‘People at the Heart of TenneT’.
In the new structure, the People unit (PPL) will seek to foster much greater collaboration between teams in Germany and the Netherlands, getting the best from both by focusing on our common goals, sharing our vision for TenneT and learning from each other, rather than allowing differences to slow us down. Another key aspect of our People vision is to be more plugged into the core objectives of TenneT, allowing HR to serve the business more directly and using analytics data to inform a more business-aligned People approach. Looking ahead, PPL will also help TenneT future-proof itself by taking a different approach to its people culture, embracing new mindsets and making people feel empowered to take risks. In all these respects, PPL will be more professionalised and hard-wired into the business, with a mission to ensure TenneT is a great place to work, with true impact on society.
