Inclusive business practices

We encourage our employees to be themselves, regardless of gender, age, (cultural) origin, religious convictions, nationality or sexual orientation.

As an employer, we are committed to working towards a diverse team consisting of men and women, people of varied ethnicity, age, religious convictions, educational background and management styles.


Although energy technology is among the top 10 professions for men, we are committed to bringing about a diverse staff complement.

  • We have a policy of recruiting more women to management positions. In 2009, 8% of managerial posts in our organisation were held by women, compared with 25.6% in 2015.
  • Alliander is working towards diversity not just as part of its social responsibility, but chiefly because diversity is of significant added value in a world where we are expected to work together, be smart and show sensitivity.
