Our Consultative and Planning Services

Labor Market Information Research
We can provide you with local labor market information to help guide you in your business decisions. We can also provide community profiles, industry profiles, occupational pay ranges, and more.

Outplacement Assistance
We assist businesses that are downsizing due to economic factors or other circumstances. In partnership with the regional Rapid Response, we can meet with you and your management team to develop a workforce reduction plan that minimizes impact on employees and business reputation. Then, we can bring in a team of workforce professionals to meet with the dislocated employees and guide them through the next steps. We cover topics like unemployment insurance, health insurance, free community services, and how to quickly find a new job.

Consultation Services
Tap into the experience that comes from working with hundreds of businesses every year. We can meet with you and visit your site to figure out new solutions to your workforce challenges. We provide entrepreneurs and businesses the information and resources needed to enhance business performance.

Tax and Financial Incentive Services
There are numerous federal and state tax incentives and grants. We’ll help you locate and apply for them. We also can connect you with local, regional, and state economic development as appropriate to utilize their services and incentives too.
