YAVAPAI@Work...when one door closes another opens. NACOG was an integral partner to grow a talent pipeline for a new employer in the Prescott area last year. We were able to make significant financial and human investments to assist this employer and develop and grow their business. Sadly, because of many obstacles the company laid off more than 30 employees.
One of the primary services YAVAPAI@Work offers is lay off aversion, job replacement and access to occupational education programs. We are pleased to announce that 28 of those 30 individuals laid off are now gainfully employed with other employers in Yavapai County. Attracting and sustaining qualified individuals to our area is a challenge, employers are reporting a high demand for talent. Fortunate for several employers in this area was the opportunity to move these qualified individuals in to their place of business and fortunate for the laid off workers to have many opportunities to move directly into other employment without having to rely on Unemployment Insurance or other state services.
If you are facing a lay off please contact NACOG at 928-778-1422 or visit www.yavapaiatwork.com for more information on transitional services including continued education, direct job placement and other assistance as needed. NACOG services are offered countywide.
