A recognized industrial expertise in France

for the economic and employment development

Fully owned subsidiary of the Thales Group, GERIS helps since 1978 its shareholder and the large companies to create value and sustainable jobs empowering their local industrial ecosystem.

GERIS is today recognized as a key player in the economic development of the various French territories:

  • We support Thales in the deployment of their own Group Agreement that aims to promote professional development through anticipatory approaches and reinforce the policy of territoriality for employment, thus being a major player in the Group’s CSR (Corporate Responsibility) policy.
  • As a “laboratory” of social innovation, we have designed and implemented HR engineering support systems for SMEs (Small and Middle sized Enterprises). These systems are very well-known as leverages to develop skills and cope with changing business.
  • Finally, we create a vital link between large companies and SMEs in order to promote industrial synergies and anticipate economic changes.

Relying on a multidisciplinary team of experienced consultants, a high level dialogue with the socio-economic and government players, as well as a powerful and wide-ranging network of decision-makers, GERIS has developed highly sought-after expertise, particularly in two key areas:

  • The Site Turnaround and the Search for potential buyers, giving the opportunity to create a new industrial future for sites and employees
  • The Economic Revitalization, transforming the legal constraint on large companies that are undergoing restructuring into an economic and citizen opportunity
