Rapid Response Team Activated to Assist Select Specialty Hospital Employees in Fort Wayne


INDIANAPOLIS (November 10, 2016) - The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and its community partner, Northeast Indiana Works, have activated the state’s Rapid Response team to assist employees affected by the announcement that Select Specialty Hospital intends to close its facility in Fort Wayne.

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 as well as 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 Northeast Indiana Works at 260-469-4308.
