Bombardier’s products and services are made possible by the efforts of our 69,500 talented employees worldwide.
Recruiting, engaging and growing talent enables us to innovate and create industry-leading products that meet our customers’ performance expectations. Our employees contributions and feedback are an integral part of our continued transformation. We are committed to supporting and developing a dynamic and diverse workforce to achieve sustained growth in years to come.
Employee input and feedback is integral to strengthening our operations and our culture. Recognizing the impact of transformation on our workforce, we have decided to review and redesign our employee engagement strategies to better align with the company's current priorities. We continue to maintain regular dialogue with our employees throughout the year, including company-wide and one-on-one communications, because we know how critical engaged employees are to the success of our company-wide transformation.
