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

- 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

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 Result

- 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

- Provided significant support to internal HR teams allowing them to focus on business as usual


 Client Testimonial
