    1) bring out the best in colleagues
    2) build leadership that empowers leaders
    3) organise work and people so they can utilize their full potential to accomplish the TenneT objectives and
    4) increase the quality of interaction between people

    'We bring people at the heart of TenneT by growing into a more strategic partner in business, enabling 'future proof' HR solutions for organisational growth' is the overall objective for the People unit.

    Within People the operating model is designed on the click-call-face principle, where leaders and employees are responsible for the various HR aspects. Information is easy accessible, leaders/employees can arrange their HR tasks themselves and processes are clear. If self-service is not an option (because of complexity) the support is organized within People Operations. In case of more complex/(organizational/individual) sensitive topics there is the possibility to get supported by a colleague. Next to the support for the business the HR Professional is the linking pin between People Operations and the HR Business Partner. The HR Professional is a new role in the HR Business Partner team.
