Leveraging employee diversity
Airbus strives to become the reference for providing a safe, healthy and engaging workplace where very smart people perform to their best in the interest of productivity and competitiveness.
The company's employees draw on a pioneering spirit that has helped the company become an industry leader. This multi-cultural workforce exceeds 58,000 – including over 100 nationalities from each region of the world – and contribute to a dynamic, enterprising business environment.
Airbus offers fantastic career opportunities, and believes in fair access to work-class development opportunities for all. Professional advancement within the company can take an employee not just to another floor or another building – but to another country.
A global talent pool
Airbus takes pride in the diversity of its employees, and values the special experience and expertise that come from its truly global workforce. The company thrives on the mix of ideas, vision and knowledge such a combination of cultures creates. At the same time, Airbus encourages its employees to develop individual talents and take pride in their heritage.
However, diversity is not just about nationality. An increasing number of Airbus employees are women, who are working in a full range of jobs and responsibilities – including those considered as traditional male roles.
In addition to its many sites around Europe, Airbus has subsidiaries in North America, China, India, Japan and the Middle East, along with an engineering joint venture in Russia. As a result, the pool of talent from which Airbus selects its employees has truly become global.
