Governor Cuomo Partners With 100 Chambers of Commerce Across the State to Promote Free Business Support Services
Partnership will reach over 50,000 businesses
Albany, NY (July 1, 2014)
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a major outreach project between the Department of Labor and more than 100 regional chambers of commerce throughout New York State as part of strategic approach to provide free services and help businesses access capital incentives, grow their workforce and manage their operations. Combined, the chambers of commerce will relay the no-cost business support services to over 50,000 businesses across the state.
"By partnering with more than 100 chambers of commerce, we are increasing the spotlight on the many ways that the state can help businesses thrive," Governor Cuomo said. "From managing day-to-day operations to finding the right employees, our administration offers a variety of services that can open doors to a more competitive future for any company. I am proud that the state is partnering with these regional organizations and I encourage all business leaders to explore how New York can help them grow."
The State Department of Labor and Empire State Development are partnering with businesses to tailor services for them in each region of the state. Since February, the Department of Labor has completed a series of more than 60 meetings with more than 100 chambers of commerce to outline the benefits of using the state's no-cost services for businesses. A complete list of services can be found below.
"In every one of our presentations so far, businesses in attendance have been surprised by the breadth of new and updated services the state offers," said State Labor Commissioner Peter M. Rivera. "We tailor our services to businesses' needs and I invite every business to contact us to learn more."
Using state services saves businesses time and money. The amount of cost savings for businesses depends on the services used.
