New Jersey Industry Partnerships

Industry Partnerships are the New Jersey Labor Department’s new model for building sector partnerships that facilitate public-private collaborations to meet workforce and economic challenges. Industry Partnerships bring together business leaders from similar sectors to discuss their workforce needs and resolve their operational concerns. Also in the room are representatives of public agencies, silent partners who work to develop customized solutions tailored to the specific, expressed needs of the industry sector.

The goal of this new sector partnership model is to help regional economies thrive and encourage business to set the agenda to resolve industry challenges. This is a unique opportunity to identify problems best solved collaboratively.
