Governor Introduces Jobs NJ Initiative
On January 15, 2020, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced his administration’s Jobs NJ Initiative in East Brunswick, NJ. Jobs NJ, a collaborative, whole of government approach to achieving these goals, was developed by the Governor’s Jobs and Economic Opportunity Council. Implementation will be led by the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education, New Jersey Economic Development Authority, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, and the New Jersey Department of Education. The plan includes three strategic priorities, with targeted initiatives in order to support the following:
- Expand Access to Opportunity by increasing educational attainment among underrepresented minorities and other targeted populations and ensuring equal access to opportunities in all regions of the state.
- Train Individuals for In-Demand Jobs by connecting educational and training programs to industry needs and leading the region in programs that prepare adults for high-quality jobs throughout their entire careers.
- Match Talent to Jobs by ensuring access to up-to-date job information, celebrating employers that provide high-quality jobs, and creating a dedicated team to craft individualized solutions to complex access-to-labor problems.
GSETA is reviewing the plan and may have comment on Jobs NJ in the near future.
