Thalys has just been added to the list of Top Employers for 2022! This label is awarded for a period of one year by the Top Employer Institute, which evaluates and promotes the excellence of HR practices within companies. The audit, which precedes the accreditation, examines various themes, such as well-being at work, diversity, and career development. The award commends our HR initiatives over the past few years, which have put people at the centre through a flexible teleworking policy, an extensive training offer, a caring work environment, transparent internal communication about our ambitions and a strong social and environmental commitment. The certification is an incentive to continue moving forward in the same direction and to offer our employees the best possible working environment as we build the Eurostar Group, which will be the European champion of high-speed train travel!

Our ambition? To share a strong vision on rail traffic in Europe while stimulating exchanges via direct international rail connections that are both fast and easy. To meet this challenge, we had to create a more efficient and environmentally friendly transport ecosystem, by offering better alternatives to road and air transport. Passengers’ needs are at the core of Thalys’ business, and this is reflected in our motto “Welcome to our world”. Behind the Thalys product there are more than 600 direct collaborators offering a Europe-wide service that is sustainable, fast, efficient, easy and pleasant.

This fosters team spirit and a sense of belonging, in line with our motto "Welcome to our world"!
I have been working at Thalys for almost 10 years. Since my arrival, I have held 6 different positions: I started as a Reporting Officer and am now head of a team of 5 people. The railway sector offers many opportunities for development and allows you to broaden your knowledge and skills. Nothing is impossible when you are surrounded by a motivated team. At Thalys I was able to tackle topics I knew nothing about, it confirmed my belief that practice is one of the best ways to learn!
At Thalys, I was recruited based on my profile and my potential, and the company allows me to grow both professionally and personally. I have been lucky enough to work on four cross-functional projects in three different departments, ranging from the redesign of the commercial offer to train maintenance. I am currently working on the merger with Eurostar, a very interesting and international challenge!
