BRIDGEWATER, NJ – The Somerset County Business Partnership has launched the Somerset County/NJ Employer Toolkit to help boost tourism, workforce development, and economic development by to provide vital information to visitors, residents, employers, and employees.

The Somerset County Employer Toolkit is the result of a year of collaboration among private and public business sector partners according to Mike Kerwin, president/CEO of the SCBP.

“Our private sector partners were clear on the need to attract and retain talent as a competitiveness challenge and were helpful in defining the types of information that is important to prospective employees and visitors,” Kerwin said.
