Case Study: Faurecia – Building Workforce Capacity (Tier 2 Supply)

How we helped Faurecia put the final parts in place for their new plant

Problem statement:

  • Faurecia, one of the world’s largest car component manufacturers, needed to hire a new workforce to help them support BMW Mini.
  • Our task was to design and execute an assessment, selection and training programme for 280 employees to guarantee that the start-up of this new facility was problem-free.

What we did:

  • The labour to satisfy the demand was not available in the commutable area so a second source (Eastern Europe) was used to source recruits.
  • The assessment and training programmes needed to accommodate different languages, cultures and behaviours.
  • The workforce was completely outsourced by the client to a managed workforce provider who had strict requirements for multi-skilling and performance levels in their SLA.

How we did it:

  • We prepared an extensive, critical path driven, project plan including required resources.
  • Carried out an extensive TNA (training needs analysis) with the client and designed an assessment and training programme to test for the attitude skills and knowledge.
  • The assessment and training programmes included filters and testing to ensure that these performance requirements were achieved.

The result:

  • The programme was used as an exemplar by Faurecia.
  • The elements of the Jigsaw training programme are still in place today leaving the client with a sustainable system of assessment and training.
  • The project was delivered on time and budget.
