Ed Haslam set to introduce more robust human resources processes to the business
FORTERRA have appointed Ed Haslam as their new director of human resources (HR). He brings with him significant experience gained in HR roles across a number of prominent companies, including MG Rover, Saint Gobain, Rolls Royce and Weetabix.
Mr Haslam’s appointment comes at a significant time for the organization, which floated on the stock market in April 2016 – a factor that is said to have attracted him to the role.
Commenting on his new position, Mr Haslam (pictured) said: ‘I am looking forward to the opportunity to influence Forterra, a company that is in charge of its strategic direction and performance for the first time.
‘The opportunity to influence across the whole organization is huge, and there is a genuine demand for a step change in the support and offering the HR team provides to really make a difference to the organization.’
Mr Haslam also stated his intention to introduce more robust processes to the business in the areas of learning and development, resourcing and talent, performance and reward, and employment and employee relations.
