In any economy, a business may be faced with a situation where they have to lay off a portion of their workforce. This situation is never easy for employees or businesses but there are some excellent resources available during this difficult transition. WorkSource Spokane has a dedicated Layoff Response Team to help advise any size business and its employees throughout the entire process of a layoff or closure.
If a layoff cannot be prevented, the Layoff Response Team will assist the affected employees with connecting to their next opportunity by developing a customized plan with the business. WorkSource will provide information and resource sessions for the employees to identify their needs, interests and skills, and create customized job fairs and hiring events to get them back to work quickly.
For area businesses looking to add new talent to their workforce, attending a WorkSource customized job fair or hiring event in conjunction with a Layoff Response may be one of the best options available. These customized hiring events put highly qualified and skilled workers, who are available to work immediately, in front of businesses that are looking for their specific abilities.
On February 8th, WorkSource Spokane will conduct a targeted job fair at Northern Quest Casino to connect businesses to recently laid off employees whose titles and skills include: CDL Truck Drivers, Human Resources, Machine Operators, Purchasers, Supervisors, Welders, and more. To take part in this hiring event, and to find your next great employee, contact Lynda with the Layoff Response team at (509) 532-3175.
