There is an Employers Association in almost every state. In some states there are several. Employers Associations offer training and human resources assistance to a variety of public and private businesses in their respective regions.


The function of an Employers Association is to provide businesses with a place to go for assistance and training services. Training can cover anything from computers and technology to the fundamentals of human resources and employee management.


Employers Associations offer a broad range of human resources related services. These include but aren't limited to employee background checks, harassment prevention, employee surveys, on-site training, teambuilding, management and leadership development, benefits consulting and group insurance services.



There are several advantages provided by Employers Associations. They help businesses to encourage loyalty and productivity in existing employees, find and hire valuable new employees, and develop strong leadership skills in management staff.
