This is CAE

Our culture is our core, it is who we are, our identity and it is fundamentally what makes us unique

At the heart of everything, we are


The fundamentals of CAE, and what we aim to do every single day

Loving your job PURPLE

Loving Your Job

Bringing passion and enthusiasm to work every single day so that it is infectious to all those around you. Having fun, letting your personality shine and caring deeply about your integrity. Embracing change to help improve our business and encouraging an inspirational work environment.

Working together PURPLE


Building on communication within and between teams. Taking it to a level where we are truly collaborative and fully joined up. Promoting trust and showing solidarity so that everyone feels empowered to be at their best.

Doing it different PURPLE


Taking responsibility to deliver our best customer service, whatever the challenge. Being agile, adaptable and flexible; delivering those insights that makes us unique. Creating intimacy with customers and suppliers so that our relationships are extraordinary for the long term.

Advocate belonging PURPLE


Recognising that everyone should be able to bring their whole self to work and that we promote an environment that is diverse, equitable and inclusive. It is the big questions and the little actions that matter. By taking that extra thought, we bring people together and support them in being the best they can be.

Our Culture

Culture is not what makes us the same. It is how we bring all our differences together, by finding commonality, and positive things that we share.

Our culture is not dictated. It is understood and committed to by everyone, captured in every way possible and celebrated.

Our Culture is everything. It is every thought, action, word and look; tangible and intangible; at all times; every behaviour of every single person.

Our Culture is a living, developing thing that adapts over time. It includes everything in our past and defines our future.

How we work in order to

support our values


Being able to stand up for what we believe is right and not comprising our values in the face of adversity.


Being there for each other in every possible way - whenever it is needed; professionally and personally. Taking pleasure in other people's success so that we reinforce what good looks like.


Understanding the impact of our actions so that we bring together thoughts and ideas; knowing that this approach leads to the best levels of engagement and gets the best results.


Being open to driving change based on a shared understanding of achieving an end goal and the potential to move at pace.


Taking ownership and responsibility with a determination to succeed. Being willing to admit mistakes, not blame others, and always taking the time to think about how we improve.

Our Purpose

"To transform people's experiences and people's lives through technology"

Our purpose can make a difference to every aspect of our business and to everyone who comes in contact with us, by inspiring and developing people, creating intimacy and sharing expertise.

Our purpose brings our why to life, and gives it meaning. 

We believe our purpose allows us to make a difference and makes the impact of what we do real. 

Our purpose is a belief shared by everyone at CAE and means something to all of us. 

It is how we can change the world.

Celebrating 30 years of culture, customers, and cutting-edge innovation

"Many things have changed in the last 30 years, but CAE has always worked to put the best people in the most supportive environment so that they can help customers progress and in turn progress themselves, and that is certainly worth celebrating"
