Career centre offers new perspectives

The fact that our organisation is in flux is reflected in such developments as the increase in the number of employees who have become redundant. In 2015, 141 (2014: 111) colleagues were declared redundant and a total of 152 (2014: 167) had registered with the career centre, which is designed to bring together job supply and demand in the company. In 2015, the career centre helped 19 (2014: 18) people find a new job or a new perspective.

“The employee representation body looks back on an eventful year. One of the key issues was the re-parcelling operation with Endinet and Enexis. After an intensive process, we took leave of our Endinet colleagues and welcomed our new Enexis colleagues. Together, we achieved a good result for both the employees involved and for the companies. Secondly, I would to mention the elections for the new Alliander Works Council. The Central Works Council and the Liander Works Council have been integrated into this new Alliander Works Council. The Works Council has a flat hierarchical structure and wants to present itself in 2016 as a streamlined employee representation body. But the rest of our company was on the move as well. In 2015, we received a total of 28 requests for a formal opinion and consent.”
