Michigan Values Veterans (MV2) is an economic investment initiative that offers an opportunity to recapitalize Michigan’s workforce while reducing veteran unemployment. The MV2 initiative represents a new and innovative approach to veterans’ employment by focusing on helping employers build veteran-employment pipelines that will attract, hire, train and retain veterans as part of their workforce. This new concept is a paradigm shift in how the employment process has historically worked.
Participants at the MV2 conferences are provided a detailed road map to help connect the dots between veterans searching for employment and employers searching for high-quality talent. “We are very excited to be one of the first companies involved with the Michigan Values Vets Initiative,” said Virginia Gronley, learning and development consultant of Axalta Coating Systems, one of Mount Clemens’ largest employers. “We believe that recruiting and hiring veterans is a great business decision.”
The conference was presented by TMG, Inc., a Virginia-based company offering customized workforce assessment and training for companies committed to hiring and retaining veterans as part of their workforce.
“TMG is proud to support the Michigan Values Vets initiative in Macomb County,” said Joe Barto, founder and president of TMG and a U.S. Army veteran. “Teaching employers how to hire and retain vets to recapitalize their business is the core of this initiative.”
