No Cost to Companies That Choose Virginia
Virginia Talent Accelerator Program services are offered at no cost to eligible new and expanding companies considering multiple states for projects that will generate new jobs and capital investment. Eligible projects include manufacturing and a range of business service operations including technology development centers and corporate headquarters.
An Agile Approach Generates Rapid Results
The Virginia Talent Accelerator’s talent acquisition and instructional design work is elevated by a talented team of video producers, graphic designers, and 3D animators whose focus is developing highly customized visual media to expedite recruitment and accelerate new hire learning through visualization. Having this expertise in-house ensures a highly responsive and coordinated approach, enabling clients to begin taking delivery of services before their project is even announced.
Access to Virginia's Rich Talent Ecosystem
While all Virginia Talent Accelerator Program services are developed in-house, the talent resources our clients gain access to go beyond the program's comprehensive deliverables. Every manufacturing project is structured as a partnership with the nearest community college. This gives clients direct access to pipelines of mechatronics talent. And every project will be connected with Virginia's world-class universities including all five HBCUs. That's in addition to helping clients leverage the resources offered by Virginia Career Works and other providers of employer support.
