Great Place To Work
Statkraft named as one of the best workplaces in Ireland!
Statkraft Ireland has been named Ireland’s Best Small Workplace for 2023 at the Great Place to Work awards. This is just the second year that the Cork-based company has participated in the programme.
The ranking is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace. The survey measures several factors including employee development and the pride that employees feel working for their organisations.
The Great Place to Work Programme measures organisations through a combination of an Employee Survey and a Cultural Audit.
The pillars of credibility, respect and fairness measure employees’ trust in management and the pillars of pride and camaraderie measure employees’ feelings about their jobs and colleagues.
Some of Statkraft Ireland’s results were broken down into the following:
- Credibility (97%)
- Respect (94%)
- Pride (91%)
- Camaraderie (96%)
- Fairness (96%)

What defines us
One of the key qualities that makes Statkraft a great place to work is the environment that we have created. This is one of trust and autonomy and something the team is very proud and protective of.
The recruitment is tough - it is not easy to get a job in Statkraft, but this is not something that will change. We ensure that the people hired are competent, innovative and responsible, just like our core values. Hiring with these values in mind brings us a range of people from different backgrounds, geographies etc. but unites us all by having these in common.
So how does Statkraft create a culture of trust and autonomy? It hires smart people and lets them get on with their work. It recognises that its people are the key to achieving its business goals so trusts that because they were hired in accordance with its values, they can get the job done.
It is important that people go above and beyond each day for the organisation, and celebrating that is something is taken seriously too.

Since joining Statkraft I have had endless opportunities to continue to learn and improve both professionally and personally. It is great to be surrounded by such likeminded, talented people in which we all are working towards a common goal of a greener future. "
