The Danish company Vestas is the world’s top wind power company. With over 24,000 employees in 76 countries, Vestas specializes in the design, manufacture, sales, installation and maintenance of wind turbines.
To remain in this position of leadership, Vestas has adapted to the sweeping changes that the industry has undergone in recent years. Particularly starting in 2009, as wind power buyers went from a model based on direct negotiation between two parties (often with subsidized prices) to a tender-based system.
This radical transformation in wind power service sales, contracts and maintenance has entailed an enormous challenge for the company’s human resources team.
