The New Jersey Economic Development Authority, in partnership with the Office of the Governor of New Jersey, is working to develop programs and resources to support New Jersey’s business community during the COVID-19 outbreak. We’d like to ask for your help today on two initiatives:
- SMALL-TO-MEDIUM ENTERPRISE (SME) FINANCIAL ASSITANCE SURVEY
They’re seeking information from small-to-medium enterprise owners and leaders to inform the development of new programs and initiatives to support organizations during the COVID-19 outbreak.If you’re willing, we’d greatly appreciate your help getting the survey out to business and non-profit leaders (CEOs, COOs, Presidents, Executive Directors, etc.).The survey can be accessed at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CVSupport. We’re trying to generate responses quickly as they will use this information to guide the development of short-term support that will be launched imminently.
- COVID-19 JOBS & HIRING PORTAL
The State is building a centralized resource to match talent with opportunities in industries on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The first crucial step is to gather details on employers’ immediate hiring needs. They’ve built an intake tool for employers to share this information which can be directly accessed here: https://jobs.covid19.nj.gov/intake.You can find more information on intake process on the State’s COVID-19 Business Information Hub: https://cv.business.nj.gov.They’re starting the roll-out of this new tool with critical industries like grocery stores, shipping and logistics, healthcare, janitorial services, and warehousing, but over time we’ll expand to work with all industries that need to tap extra deep into New Jersey’s best-in-class talent pool during this extraordinary time.
