Generation gap management

Employees | Generation gap management

We are committed to mitigating the negative effects of economic and demographic changes, which include the risk of a shortage of candidates for jobs with appropriate skills. We are successively preparing to face the effects of the so-called generation gap and we are strengthening the Enea brand as an attractive employer. Out of more than 16 thousand Employees employed in the entire Enea Capital Group, 41% are over 45 years old.

We implement a long-term Generation Change Programme, which aims to maintain the desired competences in the company and ensure the continuity of high standards.

The three elements of the Generation Change Programme are:

  • Competence Supplementation Programme
  • New Payroll Policy
  • Voluntary Leave Programme

Our main activities stemming from the Competence Supplementation Programme are as follows:

  • Improving the competence of employees through training tailored to their needs
  • Mentoring programmes for new employees run by experienced specialists of our Group
  • Implementation of internship programmes aimed at attracting ambitious candidates
  • Development of cooperation with educational centres, sectoral schools, in the organisation of apprenticeships and in the promotion of professions closely linked to the energy sector

The Voluntary Leave Programme is an offer for Employees of companies from groups specified in the Voluntary Leave Programme Regulations. It aims to manage the departure of employees in a controlled way and to restore key competences in a timely manner.

  • Internships and training periods at Enea

    • 188 pupils and students took part in the internship organised by Enea.
    • Students and graduates can also take advantage of the 3-month summer internship provided by the Enea Group.
    • In addition, we have launched an annual internship programme ‘Install yourself at Enea’.

    We dedicate ‘Install yourself at Enea’ to young and ambitious people who care about gaining unique experience under the wings of a market leader. Under the Programme, students and graduates have the opportunity to develop their skills in business areas (including technical and operational, administrative and legal, financial and accounting, HR, IT and trading).

    The programme started in 2017, when we organised meetings of ten trainees with experienced specialists in various Enea Group companies. Apart from gaining industry experience, its participants had a chance to develop their soft skills by, inter alia, taking part in workshops on self-presentation.

    70% of the trainees after the end of the programme were offered a job in our Group.

    The second edition of ‘Install in Enea’ was attended by sixteen trainees and apprentices. We are seeing a steady increase in interest in our programme.

    More information about the programme can be found here.
