RideWise kicked off the new year early with a presentation on the agency’s programs and services for employers at an Employer Resource and Information Event on January 3. Organized by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board, the event consisted of presentations designed to provide Somerset County employers with valuable resources.
The event brought together a diverse group of organizations and agencies. One employer said of the event, “My expectations were far exceeded with all of the presentations and information! Everyone truly seemed to care about their programs and about helping us, the employers!”
RideWise’s presentation focused on commuter support and sustainable travel options, transportation-related sustainability, safety and workplace wellness programming, and the benefits of New Jersey Smart Workplaces. Other organizations present were Raritan Valley Community College, Greater Raritan One Stop Career Center, Division of Wage & Hour Compliance, the Business Action Center, OSHA, Office of Apprenticeships, Work Opportunity Tax Credit, Federal Bonding, programs for Veterans, and Vocational Rehabilitation.
