In our increasingly globalized and competitive economy, businesses are in a constant state of change – challenged with building and maintaining a skilled workforce to help them innovate, compete, grow and prosper.
Rapid Response is a proactive, business-focused and flexible strategy designed to:
- Help growing companies access the resources they need for continued success, including helping them meet existing and future talent needs.
- Assist in responding to announcements of layoffs and plant closings by quickly coordinating services and providing immediate aid to companies and their affected workers – facilitating rapid re-employment and minimizing negative impacts.
Rapid Response teams will work closely with your company and any employee representative(s) to quickly leverage public and private resources to minimize disruptions on your business, your workers, and your community. Rapid Response provides customized services (on-site or virtually), accommodates any work schedules, and assists company leadership and affected workers in transitioning from job losses.
If you are looking to access skilled workers, need help managing a layoff or plant closing, or just want to learn more about the solutions we provide, contact Kentucky’s
