Former Director, Resourcing and HR, Thales
Jason West is Managing Director of HR and Resourcing transformation specialists, Integrated Resourcing. He was formerly Programme Director – HR Transformation, at Thales Group, a multi-national systems engineering business operating in the Aerospace, Defence, Transportation, Security and Space Sectors, that has annual revenues of €14B and employs 65,000 people globally.
Jason started working with Thales UK in 2008 with accountability for transforming Thales’ approach to Resourcing. Over the course of four years he led a programme of 21 projects to design, implement and optimise an Integrated Resourcing Model that connects the demand from business planning with the supply and capability of permanent, fixed term, graduate, contractor, temporary and sub-contract labour.
This model has ensured Thales UK has the people it needs, when and where it needs them, and has delivered more than £30M in measurable savings.
In 2012 Jason led a global HR Transformation as Programme Director covering 24 countries. The project created a new HR strategy, HR Operating Model and detailed designs for new global Learning & Development and Resourcing Centres of Excellence. Jason’s final project for Thales secured executive sponsorship and funding for a Workday HCM and Payroll implementation that enabled the implementation of Thales’ new HR Operating Model in Australia, Canada, UK and USA.
