Ocean Winds (OW), an international offshore wind energy company created by EDP Renewables (EDPR) and ENGIE (50:50), has received the Great Place to Work certification for its third time in Spain, where its headquarters are located; for the second consecutive year in the United-Kingdom, OW’s biggest presence market with currently five offshore wind projects; and for the first time, in Poland, where Ocean Winds is developing the BC-Wind project and other opportunities are expected. The GPTW certifications are obtained after an independent analysis, after a survey is completed by the employees and, granted by the consultancy firm Great Place to Work®.
The Great Place to Work Certification comes after a year during which the OW team recently reached more than 400 employees worldwide. This outstanding growth rate brought new challenges, which demand innovation and key actions to keep on increasing employees’ satisfaction and engagement. It is by initiatives like flOW, a policy allowing employees to work remotely up to 10 days per month, that Ocean Winds adapt to the current employees’ necessities, always trying to reflect flexibility, autonomy, and confidence, the pillars of OW’s way of working and corporate culture.
Bautista Rodriguez, Ocean Winds Chief Executive Officer, commented, “With this renovated certification, Ocean Winds is positioned as a company with a valuable and inspiring culture, which attracts and retain talents. As the surveys completed by the employees show, they are proud to be part of the OW journey, and we are proud that our employees keep choosing us.”
Ocean Winds is also compromised with young talents, and by developing scholarship and educative programs, at an international and local level, the future generations are introduced to the growing offshore wind energy sector and the global opportunities within Ocean Winds.
