To learn about membership benefits and how to join:
When you join NJ/Eastern PA/DE HERC, you'll help your institution improve its recruitment and retention efforts through greater regional and national exposure for your open positions, access to a highly educated and unusually diverse pool of jobseekers, free professional development conferences and webinars that keep staff up to date on cutting edge recruitment and retention strategies and tools, the purchasing power that comes with pooled resources, and a rich network of peers at New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware institutions for support.
"Becoming involved with the HERC gave HR a platform to really connect with our Provost and Deans in exploring best practices for attracting and retaining the best faculty and staff, far beyond supporting the online recruitment process. It is really useful to be able to direct prospective candidates to the resources on the HERC sites, and tap into the many resources available there, especially those for dual career couples. Yet, what I value most in being a member of our HERC is developing relationships and sharing ideas with others in the field who have a similar mission."Share Your HERC Story

A study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that older employees who continue working past the retirement age can help boost the country's labor force. While workers have continued in their positions for longer periods of time since the 1990s, experts say an increase in older workers could help keep the workforce larger for a longer amount of time.
