Early this year, the Biden Administration announced it will end the COVID public health emergency (and national emergency) declarations on May 11, 2023.
On May 17th, the Association will convene its 107th Annual Membership Meeting.
For well over a century, the Employers Association of New Jersey has helped employer-members meet the workplace challenges of their time. Through world wars, influenza pandemic, stock market crashes, economic depression, social upheaval, the displacement of manufacturing and the rise of the service economy, terrorist attack - the Association has been a mainstay for employers in New Jersey who believe that skilled and motivated workers are an asset, not just a labor cost.
“One of the biggest reasons for the Association’s longevity is that regardless of the amount of time spent helping a member, each member receives the prompt attention, expert assistance and informed guidance from EANJ's professional staff," says John Sarno, president.
Helping employers through the pandemic was no exception, as the Association staff fielded thousands of inquiries and delivered dozens of informative webinars.
And looking ahead, the Association anticipates:
- Health, safety and wellness remaining core features of the workplace and the quality of work-life,
- Attracting and retaining talent continuing to be a major concern,
- Maintaining a positive workplace culture remaining an ongoing challenge, and
- Employers needing the best information to make evidence-based decisions.
The Association has also been diligently working on its own strategic plan. With Amy Vazquez, the Association's newly appointed Vice President and members of the Association board leading focus groups, collecting information and conducting surveys, the plan will chart the future of the organization.
“At this post pandemic inflection point, members are urged to attend EANJ’s 107th Annual Membership Meeting, where the organization’s strategic plan, including organization succession, will be presented to the membership for feedback," says Sarno.
