Job Creators Network and IFMA Announce New Partnership

Move marks the national business advocacy organization's 100th partnership

ATLANTA, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Today, The Job Creators Network (JCN) and the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA) announced a new partnership aimed at providing employer and employee resources to IFMA member companies around the world.

Serving the $600 billion foodservice industry with connections, insights, and best practices, IFMA’s mission is to drive increased market share and operational excellence—uniting a wide range of member companies toward a common goal. From culinary and marketing to sales, insights, and executive leadership, IFMA channels partner relationships to enhance the consumer’s enjoyment of the foodservice experience.

A vital component of IFMA’s mission is strengthening the educational tools available to the employers within the organization and the employees they serve. This includes educating job creators and their workforce, which is where JCN’s Employer to Employee Education Program (E2E) comes into play.

“IFMA is dedicated to serving our member companies and the employees working for these passionate job creators,” said IFMA President and CEO Larry Oberkfell. “Our partnership with JCN will bring a new capability to our educational portfolio; teaching employers and employees about government policy and how it may affect them in the workplace.”

“We are excited to partner with IFMA and strengthen JCN’s relationship with the foodservice industry,” said JCN President and CEO Alfredo Ortiz. “We hope to provide IFMA’s dedicated group of job creators with the tools they need to better educate themselves and their employees about government policy’s wide-ranging impact. An informed public is the most important defense against government overreach.”

The move marks JCN’s 100th such partnership, a major milestone for the organization.
