2016 08 24 workplace drama tmA new survey finds most New Jersey businessmen and businesswomen agree that women in the workplace having equal footing with men is a good idea.

But ask them whether their workplace needs improvement, and the responses differ.

The survey, which focused on women in the workplace, revealed “a disconnect” in men’s and women’s perceptions of gender diversity, said Philip Mandel, regional managing partner at CohnReznick, a New York City-based accounting firm.

Women business leaders are about twice as likely as their male counterparts to say their company should put more effort into increasing gender diversity, a new poll said.

2016 04 12 Christie tmNew Jersey businesses will see their taxes drop by about $48 per employee this summer. Governor Christie announced Tuesday that after running a deficit for several years, the account that pays unemployment claims is now well into the black. Christie said the roughly $1 billion balance in the fund will trigger about $200 million in cuts to the state unemployment insurance tax on businesses. That means the average business, which has paid about $700 a year per employee into the fund, will pay about $652 a year for each worker, the administration said — the first such tax cut since 1998.
