A layoff is difficult for everyone. The Rapid Response program provides a variety of free services to employers and their employees when it becomes necessary to downsize. Our goal is to help workers transition from notification of layoff to re-employment as quickly as possible.

Experiencing a layoff? We are ready to help.

We have teams of seasoned professionals across the state prepared to help you transition to your next job.
