Levelling the playing field for women in engineering
Just one in eight of the engineering workforce is female. This lack of diversity is to the detriment of the current engineering landscape – not only have studies shown that diverse teams are proven to be more effective, but by neglecting female STEM talent the UK will further impact its engineering skills shortage; a gap projected to widen in the coming years. Therefore, it is in the interest of all engineering companies to engage in this important industry issue and work harder to encourage women to join the profession.
Altran UK has a mission to become an employer of choice for female engineers, a commitment cemented by signing the WISE Industry Led Ten Steps pledge in July 2016. Having set up a dedicated working group to tackle the issues that matter to women in our business, we are making positive changes to our benefits packages, increasing transparency of opportunities internally and opening up a new dialogue with our employees to ensure that women can thrive in our workplace.

Celebrating engineering talent
Altran UK is a sponsor of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)’s Innovation Awards, an annual competition celebrating new innovations in science, engineering and technology. As a Corporate Partner of the IET, Altran UK first became involved in the competition in 2011 by sponsoring the Intelligent Systems category and has been a key supporter ever since.
Innovating for the common good is part of the vision of the Innovation Awards, with past Altran category winners including a device to defend against nuclear terrorism, a system that recycles wasted vehicular kinetic energy and a racecar for a quadriplegic driver.
As a global leader in innovation, Altran is delighted to be a supporter of the IET Innovation Awards. We are proud to sponsor the Intelligent Systems category as this is a key focus for Altran, not just here in the UK but also around the world. The quality of entries in our category gets more impressive with each passing year. John Terrington Judge and Head of Capability at Altran UK

Altran Ethical Charter
This charter is designed to unify our employees around a common framework of commitments underpinning group strategy to implement a continuous improvement approach on a daily basis.Download
Ethics and integrity are fundamental elements of our principles of action with our suppliers and clients. This commitment is not new. Indeed, in 2009, when Altran signed the UN Global Compact’s 10 Principles, our Group confirmed its willingness to work in compliance with the highest ethical standards when conducting business while respecting human rights, international labor standards, environment and anticorruption legislation. In addition, our Ethical charter emphasizes our engagement towards our partners, employees and the society in general. At all times, wherever you operate, and no matter your position, you should always keep in mind that the service we provide is not just the result of our work, but also of how we achieve it. Ethics and integrity should be in your mind as much as excellence in work performance. Corruption is today’s key concern for our Group as it can jeopardize our activities worldwide. In this respect, we have decided to design this Policy to prevent this specific risk. Our objective is to provide a detailed framework of what is expected from each of us. It should serve as a reference for applying Altran’s values in our day to day work.

Fostering the public interest
In several regional markets, we encourage staff to take part in skill-sponsorship programs aimed at public interest initiatives. In France, these projects have involved the themes of culture, solidarity and innovation. In Belgium, we are supporting the Digitalent initiative that gives young people a chance to create a digital project with the help of a tutor from Altran.
