People and Culture

at Flow Power

We’re sparking innovation and meaningful change

Our energy specialists are turning ideas into solutions – it’s how we’re creating the renewable future, together.

We’re creative thinkers united on a mission to reshape how Australians use power.

On a mission to reshape power

Since 2009 we’ve been building Australia’s efficient energy future.

We had a team of 3 and have grown to 120 people across five states. With market analysts, electrical engineers, sustainability consultants and energy strategists all on hand to design state-of-the-art solutions.

Yet we’re still fuelled by the same start-up spark as we reshape Australian energy.

And we’ve only just begun.

Changemakers with enthusiasm

We’re trailblazers – using technology and insights to stay ahead of the curve. It’s how we’re driving the energy market forward. 

And when we win, we win together. So we collaborate and connect to forge lasting partnerships, revolutionising how Australians generate and use electricity. 

Because we know it’s not just about cutting costs. It’s about empowering our customers to make a difference and supporting their energy goals. 

Your spark, our solutions

If you’ve got a bright idea, we’ll do everything to make it happen. If we hear it can’t be done, that only propels us further to solve it.

Be inspired, challenged and supported by energy innovators eager to turn your lightbulb moment into a solution. From initial concept through to development, implementation and refinement.

Our HR Genesis

When we created Flow Power’s vision of positively changing the energy market, we needed to create a HR framework that would organically bring out the best in people, through a culture of personal responsibility.

Did we want to be like our competitors for talent and say the same things or differentiate ourselves?  The temptation in business is to copy the EVP of other companies, in a slightly different form.”

We chose to develop a HR framework that is unique, like our vision for energy.

“It all starts with our people and the passion they bring to work every day”

We share a common goal; we want to make a difference, and everybody gets that opportunity at Flow Power no matter what your role is.

It allows managers and staff to work within a broad HR framework, yet encourages employees to be at the centre of decisions.  HR is never far away when support is needed – ensuring we always treat people fairly and give them the freedom to create, and share ideas, be different and truly influence outcomes.

“We take ownership of responsibilities in a culture of trust to bring out ideas”

Our leadership is non-hierarchical – the authority to make decisions is spread across our organisation. This decentralisation gives our employees a higher level of responsibility and accountability for their work, as well as bigger stakes in outcomes.

Managers are as one with their team with very few barriers – especially if you’ve got a great idea. This was the culture we wanted; free interaction and no visual ques for who is or isn’t a manager.

While there is vastly differing roles and skills at Flow Power, all are equal.
