WRITTEN IN THE GROUP’S DNA
ALTEN combines human values, a culture of excellence and expertise in assisting the performance of its clients. Our corporate culture is based on key values shared by all our employees.
Engineers and engineering are what the Group is all about. Some 88% of ALTEN technical teams are engineers, who carry out design projects and studies for technical and information system departments at large industrial, telecom and service companies. They cultivate this same feeling of belonging to a technological environment based on creativity, innovation and trouble-shooting.
ALTEN is a major employer of engineers in France and Europe.
3,000 engineers join the group every year, half of whom are graduates.
ALTEN works on a daily basis to support and promote the engineering profession and furthers the study of science among young people and women.
Each year, we award several prizes: the engineer of the year prize, which recognises innovative projects, and the “women in the industry” prize, which honours the exceptional careers of women who have stood out at the highest levels of responsibility within the company. Our membership of the women’s advocacy group “Elles Bougent” also highlights our commitment to young women in encouraging them to undertake scientific training. The ALTEN endowment supports these programs in connection with the group’s values.
ALTEN is an innovative company.
We conduct our own research and development seeking to balance economic, environmental and social dimensions with technology projects such as tracking and treatment in first aid (civilian drones) or support systems for the visually impaired (augmented reality spectacles, imaging of visual disorders).
PROFITABLE AND SUSTAINABLE GROWTH
The quality of its executive staff, its teams and its rigorous management are the cornerstones of ALTEN’s profitability and resilience.
ALTEN is a financially sound company which, year after year, attains stated goals for profitable growth. Since its inception, it has remained true to engagements in the areas of education and design, and to its support for the engineering profession.
We carry out acquisitions, continue to invest in complete project infrastructures and in R&D projects, which advance the development of new skills for future projects.
ALTEN takes on intensive projects in terms of technological challenge by collaborating (for over 25 years) with the R&D strategies of its clients in order to underpin their performance and provide support for their local, national and international projects.
HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT
ALTEN is set on reconciling performance with sustainable development.
The Group’s people are the driving force behind its business. ALTEN aims to promote diversity, employability and the promotion of talents in accordance with the fundamental principles of integrity, fairness, transparency and humility.
Diversity, whether cultural, sexual, age- or career-related, nurtures our values.
Cultivating talents, enabling individual development, developing expertise and providing a springboard for the future are part of our core commitments.
ALTEN offers everyone an environment and pathway tailored to the cultivation of skills, projects and, ultimately, the company.
