Education & Workforce Development
NJBIA members must have access to a well-trained and educated workforce. Our most recent Business Outlook Survey indicates that entry-level employees generally lack employability skills such as writing, verbal communication, critical thinking and time management. We also know that technical skills gaps still exist as well, particularly in the manufacturing industry.
NJBIA works with academia, government and our members to ensure that programs are developed and implemented to strengthen the state’s workforce pipeline and close the existing skills gap. Thanks to these efforts several programs have already been implemented to attain these goals.
Keep current on how businesses can play a vital role in helping to develop programs to improve employability skills in our students from K – 12 and through advanced career training and college.
