Outplacement support after a facility shutdown

Outplacement Facility Shutdown-02

Due to the sale of a product line, a tier 1 automotive supplier was facing a shut down affecting over 400 employees. The manufacturer needed an outplacement partner well-versed in career transitions to help their exiting employees – all while keeping production uninterrupted.

Project goals

  • Assist full-time associates in transitioning to new full-time opportunities
  • Maintain uninterrupted production until project completion
  • Reduce turnover of temporary workforce

Our solution

HTI’s Career Transition Team set up shop on site and immediately designed a program to rapidly find new opportunities for outgoing employees. While supporting these displaced employees, our team also backfilled their positions with a temporary workforce by auditing positions and creating training timelines.

A completion bonus program was implemented to ensure high employee retention within the temporary workforce. HTI was held accountable to metrics including: placement rate (transition rate), training hours, counseling hours, turnover, and cost.

  • Sourced new job opportunities for exiting employees
  • Trained a temporary workforce to upkeep production
  • Initiated program responsible for high retention levels

The results

So you can rest assured that your outgoing employees are in great hands.
