Our values

Our values are the basis of the RWE Leadership DNA

The "How" question

Our RWE values describe the core of our identity, also differentiating us from our peers and competitors. They provide stability and reliable guidelines for our behaviour and decisions.

Thus, living up to our corporate values is helping all employees in achieving our Future Picture and providing a frame of reference for our strategic decisions. They are what we stand for at RWE- they represent the behaviours we want to embrace - and they are the ideals with which we hope our customers, partners, suppliers and communities will identify us. Our values are the basis for RWE's success. Paying attention to them in everyday life helps us to succeed in the face of increasing competition.

They help us, all employees, to realise the purpose of RWE.

Our energy for a sustainable life.

„I think we all can be role models for this Behavior. Being reliable and always giving our best should be in the DNA of each and everyone one of us. If we can demonstrate determination and passion in all that we do, however small the task, we will instil confidence and trust in others. Very importantly, we must support each other, speak up and ask for help when we need it. These are things that everyone can do to drive the business forward."

“As an employer, we put a huge emphasis on the cultural & personal fit when recruiting new talent. Whom we will hire will affect the whole business. As such we know that a workplace culture built on principles that employees believe in not only increases creativity & performance, but also ensures happier and more motivated employees who feel committed to the company. We know that achieving a mission like ours requires passion, talent and teamwork, as such we believe that our people are key to success – we have built our culture on a set of core beliefs and values that keep the employee at the center. We encourage every individual to go big and to deliver beyond expectations. This is what makes RWE more than just a place to work, it combines our values & mindsets and brings us all together as #teamRWE.”
