Workforce Readiness

    North Jersey-Rockland Chapter SHRM (“NJ-RC SHRM”) believes that government and employers play a critical role in providing worker training and development opportunities to maintain a skilled labor force. We are committed to helping HR professionals remove the barriers that may prevent qualified workers from being fully considered for jobs—particularly because of their long-term unemployment status.

    As a chapter, we recognize, value, and promote Workforce Readiness as a strategic component to our mission. This contributes to the richness of our success through the coordination of programs, partnerships, and resources.

    As the Workforce Readiness leader, I serve in this volunteer position as a resource to provide direction to our members, organizations, and the community. I am available to discuss any issues and/or concerns you may be facing in this area.

    I encourage you to contact me if you have questions or need assistance in this area. Together, we are challenged to help local individuals get the basic academic, critical thinking and personal skills necessary to maintain employment, or re-enter the employment arena. We can do this by supporting existing initiatives, offering specific skill-based programs and providing a forum for workforce readiness related programs and best practices throughout the state.
