Grayling has promoted Joseph Zeratzion as people and development director for the UK and Ireland.
Zeratzion will lead Grayling’s talent strategy, with responsibility for the learning and development of all employees. He will look to further develop a “competency and progression framework” to support and reward Grayling team members.
Zeratzion was previously EMEA learning and development manager at Grayling. Before that, he was learning and development business partner at News UK.
Sarah Scholefield, Grayling MD, said: “We recognise that our people are our most important assets. We want to reciprocate their efforts and dedication by encouraging the development and growth of all team members across our UK network.
“Joseph’s appointment comes at a crucial time for Grayling, as we embark on a new phase in our evolution, and are actively recruiting to service our increasing client base. We want to reinforce our commitment to our talent by placing them at the heart of our business.”
Zeratzion added: “Grayling already understands the importance of managing, developing and rewarding team members. As part of our talent strategy, I will be looking to build on these foundations to create a culture that allows people to excel and grow.
“This not only benefits our clients through the work that we do, but is also a great opportunity to build on Grayling’s reputation as an employer of choice, both in and outside the communications industry.”
