Automation, mergers and plant relocations are impacting tens of thousands of workers throughout the world as increased competition from online retailers and lower-cost foreign imports are impacting North American markets. Business that are impacted must dismiss significant segments of their workforce to stay competitive. These programs are designed to help displaced workers secure their own futures, aid business in identifying the perhaps overlooked employees that they should keep, and teach staff how to make inexpensive YouTube videos for training and social media advertising.
I offer an own-site workshop for these displaced workers to help them develop their own business opportunities which may includes individual consultations and follow-up correspondence. The workshop includes a personalized workbook for each participant, a copy of the most recent edition of Create Your Own Job Security: Plan To Start Your Own Business at Midlife and working with smaller break-out groups on individual topics. A three-day event for 50 people would typically cost $10,000, with the price varying according to the location, services rendered, and the number of participants
