New Jersey Pathway & Skills Collaboratives

NJBIA, along with New Jersey’s 18 community colleges, are committed to creating an aligned education and workforce development ecosystem focused on ensuring all residents have accessible and affordable education and training pathways that lead to family-supporting jobs and careers to create a more equitable and resilient economy.

New Jersey residents deserve seamless access to education and training pathways that yield industry-valued credentials. Navigating those pathways is difficult even in good times. But with accelerating and dynamic changes in the workforce, the needs of employers and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the labor market, the development of a dynamic state workforce development strategy and education ecosystem has become uniquely challenging – and essential.

New Jersey Business Coalition

The New Jersey Business Coalition was formed by NJBIA and is comprised of more than 100 statewide business groups advocating for the safe reopening of New Jersey’s business community by lending its voice and expertise to a successful economic recovery.

New Jersey’s recovery effort from the COVID-19 public health crisis will require a comprehensive and collaborative approach between government (state, county and local) and the business community. We propose a four-prong approach which focuses on the specific needs of various vertical sectors and geographic regions, recognizing that a one-size-fits-all approach may not be appropriate. It must evaluate the immediate, near-term and long-term needs, while also balancing budgetary needs and resources.

Recognizing that so much is still unknown, this framework is a dynamic document that will be updated as further information that could influence the reopening process becomes available.
