“We’ve been active members of Project EZRAH from its inception six years ago, and remain committed to its core goals,” said Alex Solomon, who, along with brother Edward, co-founded Net at Work. “During this time we’ve come to appreciate just how deep the talent pool across Bergen County is and we’ve been fortunate to be in the position to hire a good many local residents who play critical roles in our organization. As we continue to grow, our support for Project EZRAH and the citizens of Bergen County will grow accordingly. While we’re truly honored to be receiving this award, we’d like to applaud all the businesses that have joined us over the years in supporting Project EZRAH and the residents of Bergen County.”
“So many businesses have joined with us to help members of our communities,” said Rabbi Yossie Stern, Executive Director of Bergen County’s Project EZRAH. “Our annual dinner affords us the opportunity to show our appreciation and highlight in what respects community-involved companies and businesses have partnered with us. We have been lucky that so many of our local establishments have always been available to help us. But Net at Work’s Alex and Ed Solomon have been with us from Day one. They have become a true partner in finding employment for our candidates and helping us place them in appropriate positions.”
