A better energy future starts with you
The energy industry is changing. At E.ON, we want to be at the forefront of those changes. We're investing billions in developing renewable energy, from wind farms to wave power, and working hard to become a trusted energy partner to our 40 million global customers. Our customers come from all sorts of backgrounds, so it’s important for us that our people do too. We believe that opinions should be respected and opportunities should be open to all. Which is why we're so passionate about making this a place where women thrive.
We're doing that in all sorts of ways. We support flexible working – and offer very generous maternity leave that means new mums don't have to come back to work before they're ready. There are also a host of family-friendly benefits on offer, including childcare vouchers and family health insurance. Networking opportunities enable women to share their knowledge and get support from their peers. And we make sure that everyone here gets the chance to fulfil their potential and achieve their ambitions, no matter what their background or their commitments outside of work. Driving the success of all of this is our own Board-level Gender Diversity Champion.
We're making great progress. Our inclusive approach has seen us win a number of awards, and at the moment, 41% of our employees are female. That means we're edging ever-closer to the 50% we're striving for. And, as with everything we do, we'll pull out all the stops until we get where we want to be.
