Equinor increasingly attractive with IT professionals
Equinor has once again been ranked the most attractive employer among professional engineers in the Universum awards in Norway – and is also becoming increasingly popular with IT experts.
At the 2019 Universum professional awards, Equinor has been ranked the most attractive employer among Norwegian engineering professionals for the 16th year running. Universum surveyed more than 10,000 professionals working in Norway and handed out the awards in a ceremony in Oslo in November. We climbed from No. 12 on last years ranking among IT professionals, to No. 4 on this year’s.
Head of IT, Thor-Andre Aresvik, believes we are popular with IT professionals because of our strong focus on self-development and a good working environment. “We emphasise skills development for each individual, and everyone in IT spends 20 percent of their time per week on developing their competence, obviously creating a good workplace culture,“ he says.
