An agile and responsive organisation

We can help achieve the energy transition by being agile and responsive in our own actions. In 2023, meetings between Alliander’s managers focused on boosting our effectiveness and improving our results orientation. Topics discussed include sharing and fully embracing our strategy, and how teams can contribute to this. Our aim in this regard includes seeking a dialogue with employees and allowing teams to work on this in a relaxed way.

Performing together

In the ‘Performing Together’ approach, we offer teams an opportunity to improve their effectiveness and reflect with each other on results and behaviour so that they can perform better together. At the managerial level, we explain more clearly what we expect from our managers: Alliander’s leaders should connect with others by being open to them and paying attention to what motivates them. Professional expertise and connections are central to our leadership profile.

Culture of accountability

Through communication on our intranet and during the Integrity Week, we are encouraging a transition towards a culture where colleagues feel able to speak their mind. Sometimes this involves directly stating how they are affected personally, but it is also about exhibiting exemplary behaviour as a manager in being receptive to criticism. We have noticed that colleagues are starting to challenge each other more. We also see that, in spite of the increasing lack of tolerance in society, most of the communication within Alliander remains enquiring and constructive in nature.
