Work ethics

of our team members

Equity and fairness // Everyone at Energy Cities is on an equal footing as persons. Everyone is entitled to express their opinions and be heard, and should listen in return. There is no tolerance for discrimination of any kind.

The way we work is as important as the work we do // Holacracy is an internal way of sharing responsibilities which places human at the centre of our work and decision-making. It allows for each team member to be autonomous in fulfilling their missions while making decisions collectively when required and in a cooperative way. Moreover, at Energy Cities the right balance between our personal and work life is the number one priority in the human resources policy.

A place for everyone to contribute and grow // At Energy Cities, all of us as team members are encouraged to find a balance between the organisation’s needs and our individual aspirations. “Standing on two feet”: learning and contributing. At Energy Cities everyone is entitled to feel engaged, useful and motivated in the activities performed. This means that everyone is encouraged to change roles and perform different activities, in all due respect to the other team members and to our commitments as an organisation.

Sufficiency // Talking about the planet’s resources, about our daily work or cooperation activities with our partners and members, at Energy Cities sufficiency is a driver for change.

Leading by doing // For three decades Energy Cities has been working to make cities greener and more sustainable. As leaders in sustainability we also strive to reduce the environmental impact of our own operations as much as possible.

What is Holacracy

At Energy Cities, we chose several years ago to test other ways of running our activity from the inside. It has led us to switch from a traditional management system to a method called "holacracy"...
