Across the nation, American Job Centers, reemployment programs, and career services have turned to a concise tool, Layoff-to-Employment Action Planner (LEAP), to help dislocated workers organize and move forward on their key concerns. LEAP combines self-assessment, guidance, and planning into a 6-panel format. LEAP answers the key question of “What do I do now?” by helping laid-off workers gain clarity on their top issues and develop personalized action steps.
