Petter Arnesen started his own electrical project planning firm in Oslo together with a friend in 1997. At the end of 2011, he and around a dozen employees became part of Rejlers’ operations in Norway. A decision he has not regretted.
“It feels really good to be part of a larger group. All of a sudden we have lots of new colleagues who we can ask for advice. We can also take on larger and more complex assignments,” says Petter.
For Petter it was important to be part of a company where he and his employees could help to shape the future.
“We are continuing to build on our identity and develop our business, while at the same time increasingly becoming part of Rejlers. We are able to get involved and influence things. There is a tremendous belief that we can do things,” he says.
Petter has been through the entire Rejlers Leader Development Programme, Rejdux. The programme has provided an opportunity to meet colleagues from other parts of Rejlers and to learn more about the company as a whole.
“I have learnt so much about what it means to be a manager. Before we were just a very small company. At Rejlers there are good ideas which we can use to develop our employees and our business.”
