With over 45 Hearts for Home Care ambassadors in attendance at the New Jersey Learning Center, Talent Management Office and Leadership Development Project Manager Ron Ross and the Government Affairs Office (GAO) team, offered a full day training on ways the ambassadors can effectively be involved in grassroots advocacy. The day was filled with interactive activities, focusing on state issues, clients advocacy, and effective storytelling. Each ambassador had an opportunity to speak about their clients and employee stories which will be very impactful to legislators. The Ambassador’s next step is to meet with their district legislators during the planned, “Hearts for Home Care Advocacy Week” in May.
