A Northamptonshire based specialist engineering business, producing equipment for the UK, Indian and Chinese markets was looking to reduce their production costs in a growingly competitive market. The objective was to relocate the production for India and China to those countries and this would involve reducing their UK production capacity and consequently downsizing their workforce.
What was required?
A comprehensive plan was required, including a full redundancy consultation process. With limited resources it was vital that a step by step approach was devised and support given during the implementation.
We devised a comprehensive strategy to facilitate the downsizing exercise. This included all scripts and documentation, along with regular reviews and contingencies where required. Full support was given throughout the process.
The exercise was completed within the specified time scales. All affected employees were dealt with in a fair and dignified manner and all were assisted in securing alternative employment where required.
