A large integration and transformation programme in Saline, just west of Detroit, which we are working on with Faurecia Interior Systems, is now reaching a critical phase.

The former Ford and Visteon site which employs 2000 people, is going through a huge change as Faurecia’s own system (FES) is being introduced.

We are working closely with both the operational and internal transformation teams in the plant itself and in the 200 headcount Technical Centre in Southfield, which is being established as part of the same overall project.

Our key topics currently are planning and communicating the detailed implementation of new organisations structures, explaining the career opportunities this offers for many employees there, and the process for them to be considered for specific roles.

Understandably, and unsurprisingly, another priority is working closely with the managers and HR teams to ensure the retention of employees, where real progress is also being made.
