Investing in people

Our success is a result of our people.

We hire exceptional people and we continue to support our employees’ personal development so they can fulfil their potential. This is good for business and good for our employees. Halma people know that their personal growth matters to us and their needs will be recognised and supported.

To ensure our continued investment in people, in 2014 we created a Group Talent Director role on the Halma Executive Board and appointed Jennifer Ward to this position. Jennifer has global responsibility to develop our talent across Halma. This aligns with our strategic goals and ensures we focus on attracting the right people. We then continue to identify and support our employees’ self-development during their career with us.

Talent Development

We offer challenging personal development programmes to raise the quality of leadership throughout Halma. Our individual companies also offer customised support alongside targeted training courses for recognised qualifications and every year we reward the operating company with the best training record. The 2015 winner was Diba Industries, which has done excellent work integrating the People Development activities and our graduate programme with its company values and business objectives.
