Underpinning our professional development policy is a full array of training programmes provided by Thales’s in-house university. Clearly defined processes are in place to ensure that each Thales manager meets regularly with individual employees to review their career aspirations and professional development prospects.
We believe that teamwork is a key factor in our growth, so we encourage collaboration in everything we do and constantly look for new ways for employees to interact.
To foster innovation and individual achievement, we expect our employees to be as creative and flexible as possible in the way they organise their work. Every year, Thales awards a prize for the most enterprising new project proposed by an employee.
Established over 30 years ago, Thales’s in-house university supports employees at all key stages of their careers:
- When new team members join the company, Thales University takes part in the Welcome Conventions in Europe, the United States, Australia, China and India.
- Thales University plays a role throughout the employee's career at Thales, reviewing professional development opportunities and fostering mobility throughout the organisation.
Thales University training programmes are reviewed and updated each year to stay abreast of the changes taking place within the Group and its markets.
The training offering is organised around four key areas: Management and Change, Marketing and Sales, Programme Management and Business Processes and Software, Systems and other Transverse Technologies.
