Get to know the "Ignitis group" learning and development ecosystem!

Continuous improvement is a value and a responsibility of every employee, which we help to nurture by having a complete development ecosystem within the Group. We create fast, easy, innovative employee development experiences that meet business needs. Competent colleagues who learn everywhere, all the time and fast are building the organisation of the future.  

Newcomer's experience

Dear newcomers, welcome aboard the "Ignitis group"!

During the adaptation period, we create a hybrid interactive newcomer experience. Colleagues who have joined the Group take part in office tours, are invited to the Newcomer's Week presentations on "Ignitis group" activities, and navigate through the virtual tools - Newcomer and Greentown - which help them get up to date with current information in the first three months.

Raise a Newcomer  
Sustainalytics

 

Newcomer is an interactive game for new "Ignitis group" employees that helps them get to know the Group better during their first three months. Raising a plant called Newcomer requires a certain amount of knowledge. For example, on the first day you are invited to find out more about the working environment, on the first week - about the company and on the first month about the Group's activities. When knowledge is applied, the Newcomer grows up. 

Supply energy to Greentown  
msci

The Greentown is a virtual three-month adaptation exercise for the newly-joined manager to light up the city of Greentown. It has as many as four energy facilities: a combined heat and power plant, a wind farm, a hydroelectric power plant and a solar power plant. That would be great, but they don't work. As soon as the new manager starts the work tasks of the first day, the first week, the first month and the third month, these facilities come online and start supplying electricity to the city's buildings. 

Employee growth

Curious, courageous, every day - these are the most important words to illustrate growth within the Group. Learning and development ecosystem allows colleagues to continuously expand their professional, personal, strategic and expert competences.
