Alstom has 150,000 vehicles in commercial service worldwide. With Bombardier Transportation joining Alstom on January 29, 2021, the enlarged Group’s combined proforma revenue amounts to €14 billion for the 12-month period ended March 31, 2021. Headquartered in France, Alstom is now present in 70 countries and employs more than 70,000 people.

Alstom has a long history, but today, we want the world, and especially younger generations, to know the real Alstom. We are a vibrant company with ambitious goals.

We have always had a huge input in the development of the rail industry and its technology. Across the near century of our existence, however, we have changed and evolved. Today, we still manufacture rail equipment, but we have also gone beyond that:

  • We are leading the way to greener and smarter mobility , by focusing on sustainable growth, green and digital innovation, and operational efficiency through our “Alstom in Motion” strategic plan
  • We are Agile, Inclusive and Responsible : our AIR values help define who we are—and who we want to be
  • We are becoming increasingly global and are now present in more than 70 countries
  • In 2020, our strength allowed us to smoothly weather the storm caused by COVID19 and we even became part of France's benchmark stock market index, the CAC 40

So, if you’re looking for a company with a strong purpose and the ambition to play a role in climate change by leading the way to greener and smarter mobility, if you are ambitious and would like to embark on a challenging, global journey, and if you have a certain sense of entrepreneurship: come and leave your mark on the world, with us.

Encouraging diversity and inclusion to nurture creativity and innovation.

By bringing together people from diverse backgrounds and giving everyone the opportunity to contribute their knowledge, skills, experiences and perspectives, we create shared value for Alstom and its stakeholders while reflecting the diversity of our customers.

Clear objectives and vision to foster inclusion

Inclusion helps create a work environment and a culture where all differences are valued, respected and leveraged without any bias. Diverse teams provide wider perspectives and boost performance and innovation.

To uphold the commitments that underpin the Diversity & Inclusion journey, Alstom has set measurable objectives for achieving diversity and inclusion in the Company and has set up a robust structure at the group level, as well as within the regional entities to reach these objectives.

The Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Steering Committee, which is made of members of the top management, is responsible for the development of corporate D&I strategy and the definition of global initiatives. The Alstom Executive Committee evaluates the progress of the organisation towards the D&I goals on a yearly basis.

The deployment of these initiatives is supported both, by dedicated training courses and internal communication campaigns and by a network of D&I Champions in the regions.
