A message from Tucky Allen at Kansas WorkforceONE

Good morning,
During this time when our workforce centers are closed, a select few of us our manning the phones and chat feature of KANSASWORKS. As you might imagine, we are getting a lot of phone calls from jobseekers who have been laid off and looking for work.  I would like to get a good account of employers across our area that are hiring.  We can post your positions and let those jobseekers that call in know of your openings.  I have attached our Job Oder Form for you to utilize as you send openings to me.  I have also attached our Rapid Response info sheet should you be faced with laying off staff.
Please feel free to share this information with your employer network as I am sure that I don’t have everyone listed
Thank you and Be Safe
Tucky Allen

If you need a Job Order Form, please contact Kim at the Chamber and she will send it to you. 

Rapid Response—Lay-Off Facilitation 
What is Rapid Response?
Rapid Response services provide support for   workers and employers facing lay-offs to make the transition smoother for both. Once an  employer determines that a lay-off of any size  is necessary, the employer would contact  Kansas WorkforceONE to schedule a Rapid Response Employee meeting.  
Conducting the meeting prior to the separation date allows workers time to  consider their options before the actual  layoff date. During the meeting, the team will explain pertinent information to the employees who are facing the prospect of unemployment.  In addition each impacted employee will  receive a Rapid Response packet. 

How long do the meetings last and when would the meetings be scheduled?
The meetings last approximately one hour         depending on the size of the group and the number of questions. The Rapid Response team will conduct multiple meetings if necessary and at times when it is most convenient for the employer and employees. 

What if we don’t have time to conduct a meeting?
Kansas WorkforceONE will mail packets to either the employer for distribution or directly to the impacted employees. 
How many employees need to be affected to 
qualify for Rapid Response services?

Kansas WorkforceONE is dedicated to providing Rapid Response services to employers who are facing lay-offs of any size. 

What additional services are available through Rapid Response?

  • Guidance in obtaining funding assistance to avert lay-offs
  • Training funds may be available to train employees who would be laid off without a skill upgrade
  • Holding customized workshops on coping with job loss, resume writing, and interview skills. Conducting special Job Fairs.
