Rapid Response Team Activated to Assist VT Industries, Inc. in New Albany

INDIANAPOLIS (July 29, 2016) - The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and its community partner, WorkOne Southern Indiana, have activated the state’s Rapid Response team to assist employees affected by the announcement that VT Industries Incorporated intends to close their facility in New Albany.

The state’s Rapid Response team is activated when a significant layoff or plant closure occurs and pairs knowledgeable WorkOne staff with displaced employees to move them toward a plan for re-employment as soon as possible. Activities focus on connecting displaced employees with local employment opportunities, in addition to providing resume assistance, interview workshops and skills assessments.

The time and location of the first Rapid Response session will be announced in the near future. For more information, please contact WorkOne Southern Indiana at 812-941-6422
