Thierry Lassalle graduated from the University of Paris-1 in 1994 with a degree in labour law. He is now Director of Human Resources at Artelia (construction engineering). Artelia is based on employee shareholding and gives special importance to research and development. It promotes values of innovation, kindness and cooperation. Its achievements include the renovation of the Hôtel de Crillon, the Canopée over Châtelet-des-Halles station in central Paris, a dam in Lebanon, and many more. Thierry Lassalle who was the sponsor of the FEDE conference on 10 November tells us more.
What have been the main stages of your career?
Having initially worked as team leader for development and cooperation projects funded by major sponsors (largely in the former Soviet Union), I spent seven years as Labour Relations Manager at Thales, where I was in charge of collective negotiations and merger/integration operations. In 2006 I became Human Resources Director at Coteba.
Can you tell us about your current job role?
Following a merger between Coteba and Sogreah in 2010, I became Human Resources Director at Artelia, which is now the leading independent French engineering group, with 6000 staff members. Artelia offers a wide range of services (expertise, project management, project management support, consulting, and more) in the public and private building sectors, industry, the energy sector, the water and environment sectors, and transport and infrastructure, both in France and abroad.
What are your company’s values?
As we are based on employee shareholding, we are totally independent and can choose our own priorities. For this reason, we have decided to focus on today’s foremost values: innovation, kindness and cooperation. The results: ongoing growth, technical prowess and countless shared happy moments. In all our projects, including the Hôtel de Crillon, the Canopée over Châtelet-des-Halles station in central Paris, the construction of the biggest university hospital in Europe, in Nantes, a dam in Lebanon and a number of sites in Morocco, we always strive to apply the latest findings of our research and development department.
