Planning for and Avoiding Layoffs

Benefits to Your Workers

Office WorkerThe decision to lay off employees is one no employer wants to make. However, as layoffs do occur, inviting Rapid Response to meet with affected workers prior to the layoff will allow your employees to access services and programs that will help them through this difficult time. Rapid Response can provide your employees with information and services, including:
  • Career counseling and finding a job
  • Résumé preparation and interviewing skills workshops
  • Information on education, scholarships and retraining opportunities
  • Labor Market Information (LMI) and Occupation Data
  • Unemployment Insurance
  • Community-based services
  • And much more!
These services and resources are available for your workers at your nearby IowaWORKS Centers. Your workers will have access and use of computers, telephones, and fax machines; resume and job search preparation, financial planning and stress management workshops; financial support for training; income support for production jobs lost due to foreign competition; and special services for veterans and adults with disabilities. IowaWORKS Centers are open to the public including those who have been laid off from their job.

In addition, Rapid Response on-site meetings will introduce your workers to representatives of many other programs that can help them through this transition. Perhaps the most important of these partners is the IowaWORKS Centers. This one-stop system was designed to bring together many separate partners to seamlessly provide an array of services, from résumé preparation to job search to placement to supportive services, to anyone who wishes to have access to these services. Iowa’s network is open to all residents, including those who have been laid off or expect to be laid off from their job. The IowaWORKS Centers also have services tailored to meet the workforce needs of local employers.
