We aspire to create the UK’s best place to work in order for our people to better serve our customers and partner with them on their journey to zero carbon living.
Our people are the best representation of OVO – they are the creators of our culture and act as our ambassadors. We aim to be more than a team of employees; we aim to be a community of talented, innovative and passionate individuals, working towards the same ambitious vision and goals, constantly challenging each other and OVO to do better and achieve more.
We have an agile, creative and entrepreneurial working environment.We don’t tell our people what to do; we empower them, giving them autonomy and freedom to find solutions, develop new ideas and make independent decisions that best deliver on our purpose and vision. Transparency and two way communication are key to this.
Everyone at OVO lives by the OVO Values. Progress on our carbon reduction targets is now part of our performance evaluations and everyone needs to demonstrate how they live the OVO Values; in fact their bonus depends on it. We are incorporating Plan Zero and the OVO values into every interaction we have with our people, including our contracts, goals, values, training, and our reward and recognition.
Supporting our people
Our people are everything. We want OVO to be a supportive community where everyone at OVO feels they belong and has equal opportunities – wherever they’re from, whatever they believe, and however they live their lives. Our differences strengthen us, lead to new ways of doing things and help us meet the needs of all our customers. Our people are encouraged to own and lead their development journeys via the provision of OVO University, an Institute of Learning Management accredited centre. We want to make sure everyone has a great OVO-life balance and try our best to support them. We offer flexible working hours, competitive parental benefits and we are a Living Wage employer.
