The New Jersey chapter is ready to support our members and their guests during a critical time for our country. We have established a virtual meeting environment to allow our members to participate safely and engage with others during this time.
This month our discussion will address the reopening process for the business community. Our discussion will be led by Christopher Collins who is Director of Executive Master of Human Resource Management Program (EMHRM) in the School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University. Business owners are now facing the next phase of challenges as they transition to reopening while protecting the safety of their employees and customers. What are the common techniques and planning efforts that owners need to take to achieve a successful transition? Christopher has been active with the business community and various experts offering guidance and input to achieve success.
Join us as we sort through this challenge for our business clients. We look forward to supporting our members and their clients. Please register for this highly informative event. Final information for the Zoom webinar will be sent to all of those registered
