Over the last few years, Thales UK has transformed its HR organisation into a world-class HR shared services organisation to increase efficiency, improve employee satisfaction and provide a more strategic focus.
Thales UK is the UK’s second largest defense electronics supplier and is a part of the Thales Group, a global technology leader for the defense, security, aerospace and transport markets. In recent years, Thales UK has turned to an HR shared services model to support its 8,000 or so people in more than 40 locations across the country.
