    • Layoff Transition Assistance
    • Talent Recruitment
    • Subsidized On-the-Job (OJTs) Training

    Reduction-in-Force

    The Rapid Response Team serves companies facing corporate restructuring and downsizing with a confidential and cooperative effort between the local workforce center, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and the Unemployment Insurance Program.

    Services are designed to benefit employers and employees by providing information about the Dislocated Worker Program and other useful information and assistance with employment-related needs.

    Targeted Sectors

    Based on the 2013 Sectors Summit, the AJC has adopted three targeted sectors:

    • Health and Wellness
    • Advanced Manufacturing
    • Software Development

     

    Additionally, the Workforce Investment Board (WIB) is exploring adding the Creative Industries sector in 2014 to attract advertising, visual effects and gaming firms from the media/entertainment industry.

    Fourteen key industries were identified as critical to Colorado’s economy through the analysis of labor market data and the development of the Governor’s bottom-up, statewide economic development plan called the Colorado Blueprint.

    More information about each sector and how to get involved in the industry partnerships is available at:

    AddONE logoAddONE Campaign

    AddONE is a group of business leaders, community stakeholders and government agencies who joined together to create a grass roots initiative that intends to grow our local economy, one job at a time. AddONE contends that if just a portion of the business community hires one new employee, the economic multiplier would be significant. Even better, AddONE is a business-driven initiative that challenges businesses to AddONE, and then asks those businesses to challenge others.

    In order to make another pledge or to challenge another business to join AddONE, please send the following information to addone@jeffco.us:

    • Company Name
    • Company Address
    • Point of Contact Name
    • Point of Contact Email
    • Point of Contact Telephone Number
    • Job Title of Pledge (e.g., Systems Engineer or Sales Associate)
    • Wage Level of New Hire

     

    Additional information about employers in Jefferson County that have made a pledge and other resources for local businesses can be found at www.addone.org. External Link Icon
