Redeployment for Cobham

Redeployment for Cobham

Redeployment for Cobham

Cobham, a major global aerospace and defence manufacturer, appointed us to mitigate the impact of planned site closures and potential talent losses.

The Challenge The Challenge
  • Overcoming inconsistent policies and processes that limited mobility across business units and made redeployment difficult
  • Mitigating as many redundancies as possible, retaining talent and providing support to employees potentially affected by redundancy

The Solution The Solution

Alexander Mann Solutions set up and delivered a redeployment service featuring online and high touch elements for employees affected by the site closures. This included an interactive redeployment careers portal, workshops, one-to-one coaching and outplacement support for employees who were unsuccessful in redeployment.

Our Central Redeployment team also provided guidance on a company-wide redeployment policy and process.

The Results The Results
  • Successfully redeployed around 530 employees in the project's first year, saving our client approximately £15 million
  • In 2013 we redeployed 31 and in 2014 we have successfully redeployed 353 employees
  • Retained over 90% of target employees successfully during the programme period
  • Received consistently excellent feedback from employees, unions and senior management
  • Delivered  seamless redeployment and outplacement service with a very high success rate in retaining key talent and speedy settlement of leavers
