Empower our people

Learning and development

Our employees are essential to our vision, and we are committed to developing their skills and knowledge.

As an employer, the Group has a responsibility to develop and maintain our human resources, as well as attract and hire employees with the right competencies to solve existing and future challenges.

We are committed to ensure training and development at all levels and offer unique and interesting career opportunities for our employees. We will advertise internal career opportunities and encourage increased internal mobility.

In 2021 the Group launched corporate training and development online platform (Motimate) where compulsory and voluntary training is conducted. Motimate is a tool which our employees can use to develop their competencies and skills. Motimate provides an interactive and simple way for sharing and acquiring knowledge.

Management development

The Group focuses on forward-looking and coherent management based on the Group’s values and business strategy. Our managers shall lead by example, show direction and focus on achieving results jointly. In 2021, the Group continued to develop and implement programs and tools to ensure that our managers are accountable and skilled in their role.

Being a manager in Lerøy is a vote of confidence that carries significant responsibility.

Employee development

The Group operates in a global industry that requires employees who are dynamic and willing to adapt and learn. By facilitating formal and informal learning areas, our employees will have the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning and development, and are encouraged to work in various areas and positions in the Group.

We have a close cooperation and knowledge sharing with various educational institutions, such as universities and colleges. In addition, we cooperate with students at Bachelor, Master and PhD level.

The Group finds great value in recruiting young people and graduates into the industry. We offer apprenticeships, summer vacancies, internships and trainee positions. It is important for the Group to have people from different backgrounds and with different types of education.
