Looking for Employees? The Garden State is “Ready to Work”

From New Jersey Business Magazine:

The New Jersey Community College Consortium recently launched The Ready to Work New Jersey program, designed to connect employers with the long-term unemployed. Thanks to a $10 million federal grant and another $2 million from the NJ Department of Labor & Workforce Development, employers are able to hire individuals within the program and receive a subsidy for their salary. Additionally, the long term unemployed that participate in the program receive free professional development and employability skills training at their local community college.

Ready to Work NJ is a great program, and NJBIA is honored to promote the program to employers statewide.

NJBIA has also recently updated its Fast Facts on Workforce Training and Education, which provides information on a wide range of state resources, including financing, incentives, and grants designed to assist New Jersey employers hire and train employees, including the “Ready to Work New Jersey” program.
