SHCCNJ Seeks Public’s Assistance During COVID-19 Crisis

The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is asking for the public’s help in gathering information during the COVID-19 crisis.

The organization put out the following email on Friday and is asking its membership to complete two initiatives pertaining to the business community before the end of Saturday:

Good afternoon,

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority, in partnership with the Office of the Governor of New Jersey, is working to develop programs and resources to support New Jersey’s business community during the COVID-19 outbreak. We’d like to ask for your help today on two initiatives:

  1. SMALL-TO-MEDIUM ENTERPRISE (SME) FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE SURVEY

We’re seeking information from small-to-medium enterprise owners and leaders to inform the development of new programs and initiatives to support organizations during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The survey can be accessed at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CVSupport.

We’re trying to generate responses quickly as we will use this information to guide the development of short-term support that will be launched imminently.

If possible, we’d ask you to complete it by Saturday night.

  1. COVID-19 JOBS & HIRING PORTAL

The State is building a centralized resource to match talent with opportunities in industries on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The first crucial step is to gather details on employers’ immediate hiring needs. We’ve built an intake tool for employers to share this information which can be directly accessed here: https://jobs.covid19.nj.gov/intake.

You can find more information on intake process on the State’s COVID-19 Business Information Hub: https://cv.business.nj.gov.

We’re starting the roll-out of this new tool with critical industries like grocery stores, shipping and logistics, healthcare, janitorial services, and warehousing, but over time we’ll expand to work with all industries that need to tap extra deep into New Jersey’s best-in-class talent pool during this extraordinary time.

Thank you in advance for helping us on these efforts. We appreciate the challenges facing our community and are eager to deliver meaningful support.  As always, if businesses have questions about how the COVID-19 outbreak, they are encouraged to visit the State’s COVID-19 Business Information Portal: https://cv.business.nj.gov.

Respectfully,
Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of NJ
