News update – PCs spark at Thales

More than 200 employees took up electronics company Thales’ new home computing scheme in the first week of launch. The scheme, which went live at the end of September along with a tax-free bike plan, was implemented following employee demand for the perk.

Alex Reeves, UK compensation and benefits director, said that the company, which employs 10,000 people, wanted to encourage staff to become more IT literate.
