Thales Nederland wins Femme Tech 2014 award!
Thales Nederland is the winner of the Femme Tech 2014 award. This prize is awarded each year to a Dutch high-tech company that sets an example in attracting, retaining and developing female engineers. In the category of large companies three companies were nominated; the jury chose Thales Nederland because the mission of attracting more women is well-defined, well-executed and has been widely published.
The jury appreciates the professionalism of the diversity policy. Different methods are applied, for example, an employee who recruits a woman receives a bonus. Thales also offers an exclusive scholarship program for female engineers.
Geke Kooij, Thales Nederland’s HR Director ‘’ For many years we have been working on our diversity policy, in which we focus in particular on female engineers. We are very glad we won the Femme Tech 2014 award. It’s a recognition of our efforts, which we will definitely continue and expand in the future.’’
