Manufacturing – Flexible Packaging

Bemis Elsham is part of an American multi-national manufacturing organisation.  The site manufactures flexible packaging for the food and medical industries.  The management team wanted to restructure in order to become more cost efficient and productive and Elaine was retained to complete a restructure and redundancy project.

She took a creative approach by designing a framework to assess for redeployment rather than selecting for redundancy.  This ensured the organisation kept the best team to help them to move forward.  Elaine designed the tools to be used, coached managers in the assessment process and designed and delivered workshops to all ‘at risk’ employees to ensure that they had all of the information they needed to succeed.  She regularly held communications sessions for affected employees to ensure that questions were answered and they felt comfortable with the process.

Elaine worked closely with the management team and HR Manager coaching them through the various phases of the project.  This was a complex project which was completed on time and with minimal disruption to the operation.
