A Corporate Culture

Airbus encourages its executives not to stay in post too long; So it’s not uncommon to see them change jobs every two or three years or so. This way of working would make it possible to continuously energize the teams in place. In addition, it would promote the exchange of new ideas and a more homogeneous culture between the different sites on the planet. The recent changes in the management of Airbus Canada are therefore part of this management philosophy. So expect there to be more in the coming months.
