At Risk of Closing?

The SC Rapid Reemployment Team responds to downsizing and closures that impact South Carolina workers, enabling those affected to return to work as quickly as possible.

This is an opportunity for companies to help their workers make informed decisions concerning their future. Rapid Response services can encourage a more positive attitude toward their employer.

To start, a meeting with company management provides a description of services that can be offered. Employee demographics are also discussed to help the Rapid Reemployment Team prepare.

Next, and scheduled by company management, a team member will come onsite to provide the impacted workers with information on the services and benefits available. At the request of the company, SC Works staff can offer some of these services onsite; including, resume building, interviewing skills, online registration for job searches, etc.
