ATLANTA – Today, the Job Creators Network (JCN) and the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) announced a new partnership aimed at providing Employer-to-Employee (E2E) materials and resources to the trade association’s 10,000 members.

The FRLA is Florida’s premier non-profit hospitality industry trade association. Its mission is to protect, educate, and promote Florida’s hospitality sector—which is the state’s number one industry and employs 1.4 million people. It safeguards the needs of the hospitality industry by providing legislative advocacy and support.

“The Florida hospitality industry is fortunate to support 1.4 million dedicated employees who are collectively committed to its overall success. Through FRLA’s unique partnership with JCN, our employers will have the opportunity to access materials to effectively communicate with their employees the impacts of government policies,” said Carol Dover, President and CEO of the FRLA.

“Florida has an $108.8 billion hospitality industry, and the FRLA plays a vital role in protecting it,” said Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network. “Its partnership with JCN can provide it with the materials necessary to protect the industry and its employees from bad government policy that could undermine it.”

JCN will partner with FRLA on policy issues that promote business growth and job creation. More specifically, FRLA will provide E2E educational materials to their members to facilitate a conversation between employers and employees about how government policies affect their workplaces and paychecks.
