Rapid Response Team Activated to Assist St. Meinrad Archabbey's Abbey Press Employees


INDIANAPOLIS (December 2, 2016) - The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and its community partner, WorkOne Southwest Indiana, have activated the state’s Rapid Response team to assist employees affected by St. Meinrad Archabbey's Abbey Press' plans to reduce staff at its Spencer County facility.

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 WorkOne Southwest Indiana at 812-492-4509.
