Talent Management Services



Helping you make the best employment decisions.
TEA can help you hire the right employees for the job using our discounted employment advertising, applicant referral services, screening and interviewing, pre-employment testing and background and reference checks. Outplacement assistance is also available for those separating from your company. 

Employment Advertising  
TEA assists members in placing recruitment advertising at discounted rates with the Grand Rapids Press and other MLive Media Group newspapers and electronically at MLive.com. 

Employment Screening and Interviewing Services 
TEA can save members time and money by screening resumes, doing telephone interviewing, and/or conducting face-to-face interviews with job applicants. We work with your interviewers to assure compliance with state and federal employment laws. To arrange for screening or interviewing services, contact Rob Strate at 616.698.1167. 

Background Investigation Services  
Members can make informed hiring decisions by taking advantage of the low-cost, fast turnaround background checking service provided by a TEA Partner, AAIMEA.

Employment Testing Services
The most accurate indicator of job success is through employment testing and TEA offers a wide variety of tests that can be administered at your location or at our offices. 

Outplacement Services  
We provide assistance to your former employees who need help in re-entering the job market, from single individuals to groups of up to 20 people.
