Looking to Hire Military/Veterans?


Hamilton-Ryker TalentGro is a proud partner of several government-sponsored programs that provide military, veterans, and their spouses, with training and upskilling solutions that help give them a competitive advantage in the civilian marketplace and ignite their careers.

Through a partnership with TalentGro Military, an employer can leverage the benefits that these programs provide, for their own military/veteran employees and even their spouses. TalentGro can also connect employers with existing workforce development grants that aim to create or expand Registered Apprenticeships in certain industries.

By partnering with us, employers can promote the access to these benefits as an incentive to help with recruitment and retention, while providing fulfilling employment and benefits to our nations’ heroes.  So, contact us today, or click on one of the links below to find out more about our programs, grants and services that we provide!
