Providing timely and high-quality healthcare services for all our employees is one of DTEK Group’s key priorities. We pay particular attention to the implementation of health improvement programs and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.


DTEK Group is focused on its growth and innovation. This requires professional and enterprising employees who are ready to learn and grow through their work. To provide this opportunity, DTEK Group has adopted a training system at the corporate university Academy DTEK. It covers all employees, regardless of gender, age, specialization, and organizational position.

Therefore, the management system for labor protection and industrial safety (LP and IS) is integrated into the daily activities of all enterprises and is a prerequisite for defining and achieving strategic goals. At DTEK Group's production facilities, the LP and IS management system is in accordance with international standards.
