When the state of Louisiana experienced a major spike in unemployment claims associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Louisiana Workforce Commission turned to Plexos to help ramp up staffing and resources for its unemployment insurance hotline. Within one week of project award, we rapidly stood up a remote call center to assist Louisiana residents with new unemployment claims and technical assistance with the online claims portal. At the request of the Louisiana state government, we’ve hired and trained more than 150 local Louisiana residents to field calls while working remotely from home. Since our April 1 launch, our flexible and scalable solutions have helped more than 30,000 Louisiana residents, with about 900 calls handled at a 97% answer rate per day.
