Rapid Response

The Orange County One Stop Business Services team offers Rapid Response services to Orange County employers who are experiencing workforce changes such as layoffs or closures.  Rapid Response presentations give employers an opportunity to provide affected employees with vital resources that help them get reemployed as soon as possible and or connect with supportive services to ease this difficult transition.

The presentations are provided at no cost and cover the following topics:

  • Assistance programs for the affected employees

  • Free career center services at the One Stop Centers

  • Rapid re-employment opportunities

  • Applying for unemployment insurance benefits

  • What happens to retirement and health benefits during this transition


The Rapid Response team will coordinate all the details, and all we need from you is a space to present and for you to let your employees know when and where.

Our team consists of:

  • Business Services team Rapid Response coordinator

  • A representative from the State of California’s Employment Development Department (EDD)

  • A certified financial planner


Providing resources to help with the affected employees’ layoff transition has multiple employer benefits including:

  • Higher worker morale and lower absenteeism during layoff event due to reduced stress

  • Lower unemployment insurance costs as workers are quickly re-employed since services begin prior to layoff

  • Decreased likelihood of work disruptions

  • Better public relations for your organization


If you have any questions or would like to schedule a Rapid Response presentation, please contact the Business Services team at info@oconestop.com
