All program services are provided at no cost to qualified new and expanding companies as an incentive for job creation.
Customized, job-specific training services are designed and delivered using methodologies and media determined to be most effective for accelerating learning in each topic. These can include hands-on training, simulations, broadcast-quality videos, illustrated work instructions, instructor-led classroom sessions, animations, and e-learning modules. All company-specific materials developed during the project become the property of the client and all proprietary information will be protected by a non-disclosure agreement.
Recruiting services can include customized websites and broadcast-quality videos to tell the story of the unique job and lifestyle opportunities at a company’s Virginia location. The websites include an online application and a robust database to automate applicant screening. Additional services include recruitment ad buys, professional search services, and job fair coordination. Pre-employment training is also offered to give employers an opportunity to preview job candidates and give candidates an opportunity to preview the work. This ensures a good fit and in turn, minimizes new hire turnover.
In addition to recruiting and customized training services, the Virginia Talent Accelerator Program offers a robust suite of organizational development and operational excellence training and consulting services. These services help companies establish a collaborative culture and optimize individual performance.
