(Albuquerque, NM) – The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions (NMDWS) announced the launch of the first video from the “Unemployment Insurance Informational Video Series” as part of the department’s outreach campaign to address Unemployment Insurance (UI) program integrity. "Search for Work" is the first video released from NMDWS' new Unemployment Insurance Informational Video Series. Beginning October 2012, the department will release a new video from the 10-video series every week, including Spanish versions.

The videos are available on the NMDWS website at www.dws.state.nm.us, under “Unemployment Insurance,” and “What You Should Know About UI.” Each video released for the series will also be available on the department’s official YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/NMDWS. The videos were created as part of the nearly $2.5 million grant NMDWS received from the U.S. Department of Labor to increase the prevention, detection, and recovery of improper UI payments.

“The videos, as one part of the employer and claimant messaging campaign, will increase awareness for the need for accurate and timely responses to claims to reduce improper payments and also provide valuable information about Unemployment Insurance law and process,” said Cabinet Secretary Celina Bussey. “This is also an excellent opportunity for the department to reach a greater audience by leveraging social media with the creation of our YouTube channel.”

In the future, the department will incorporate the video series into the new, fully integrated UI tax and claims system and online New Mexico Workforce Connection system. The messaging campaign aligns with Secretary Bussey’s vision for the department to become more engaged with the business community and to promote the vast array of employment-related services and resources available to citizens across the state. Her vision includes the Department of Workforce Solutions as a leader in and a facilitator of a competitive workforce for the benefit of all New Mexicans.
