A study on managing redeployment: An effective retention strategy
Dr. Supriya Choudhary
In order to keep pace with changing business demands, organizations may need to realign their workforce, eliminating roles and functions in areas that are no longer viable, while growing other areas of the business. With redeployment, employees are no longer passive objects of workforce restructuring but active partners in the organisations drive for strategic change. Redeployment is where alternative employment is sought for employees when they are unable to perform the duties of their post (with reasonable adjustments) due to ill health or they have been selected for redundancy. The present study is an attempt to find out the reasons, causes and strategies taken for the success of employee’s redeployment in organisation and that there exists a relationship between redeployment and retention of employees in the organisation. Redeployment can be a valuable strategic option to ensure you don’t lose valuable, talented employees to your competition.
