Governor Murphy’s Future of Work Task Force issues call for research to help prepare NJ’s workforce

November 6, 2018

Governor Phil Murphy’s Future of Work Task Force, in partnership with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, and the State’s Chief Innovation Officer (CIO), is seeking expert research to inform the Task Force’s work. The Task Force, which was announced in early October under the Governor’s Executive Order 41, is charged with guiding innovation and technological advancement in the Garden State’s workforce.

“As we begin the process of reclaiming New Jersey’s place as the state of innovation, we must prepare our workforce for any challenges that may arise and ensure that our residents have the support necessary to succeed,” said Governor Murphy. “This research will be critical in our pursuit of a collaborative, data-driven strategy that ensures workers and businesses will thrive in the 21st century, while growing and strengthening our economy.”
