In any company, the role of HR is about maximising the contribution of people in order to achieve the goals of the business. Here at Aliaxis, some of the ways in which we do this are:
- building the people strategy required to deliver the business strategy
- providing a framework of company policies and procedures around the employment of our people
- ensuring that appropriate tools and personal development are provided so that everyone is able to help achieve the goals of their business
- providing guidance, support and advice to each of our businesses on implementing all of the above.
The UK HR team is mainly based at our Lenham site in Kent, with one Senior HR Advisor based at our site in Huntingdon.
As a team, we bring over 108 years of experience of working closely with managers across six sites at Aliaxis!
