Thales is One of Canada’s Top Employers For Young People

Today, Thales was named as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People in 2020. Since 2002, Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition selects the nation’s best workplaces for people just beginning their careers. 

Designed to be a valuable resource for young people looking to find the right organizational fit after graduation, the Canada’s Top Employers for Young People designation is awarded based on leadership in attracting and retaining young employees. 

Thales Canada was included on this year’s list because of its steadfast commitment to a talented and diverse workforce that reflects the needs of its customers. Thales accomplishes this by investing in the next generation of talent through robust co-op and internship opportunities, established entry-level recruitment initiatives, benefits and flexible work options, as well as ongoing career development, mentorship and training programs for all employees.

“Thales Canada brings together a unique mix of expertise to help our customers think smarter and act faster using our high technology solutions. Attracting and hiring diverse young talent is critical to our success. The energy, skillset and fresh perspective that our young employees bring to the business allow us to disrupt the now and drive innovation across the country.”
Mark Halinaty, President and CEO, Thales Canada 

In addition to hiring and fostering young employees, Thales is committed to matching its market leadership with a best-in-class recruitment policy that prioritizes diversity and inclusion. Thales Canada is a founding member of the Canadian Industrial Leadership Award, which in 2019- 2020 encourages female students enrolled in STEM programs to apply to receive a fully paid internship, a cash prize, executive mentorship and the opportunity for employment post-graduation.
