-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

As restructuring plans unfold at Los Alamos National Laboratory, local and state organizations are mobilizing to prepare for the needs that typically arise under these circumstances. Representatives from 32 businesses and organizations gathered at the Community Building Nov. 9 and again Monday.A representative from SER, Santa Fe Jobs for Progress, explained when more than 50 employees are affected by a restructuring or layoff situation, the state has funds set aside to help. SER, the New Mexico Workforce Connection and other agencies step in and mobilize a “rapid response” to assist with any ripple affects that may occur, he said. Many people have never worked any place other than the lab and can’t imagine any opportunity in this, said one of several psychologists involved in the new group. Debbie Gill of the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce told the group, “There are successful ways to manage change.”Chamber Executive Director Kevin Holsapple agreed adding there are many resources already in place to assist people. “The purpose of the dialogue we have convened is to address community preparedness for helping people deal with effects of the continuing LANL uncertainties,” Holsapple said.
