Attracting and retaining talent is critical to the economic future and overall success of West Michigan. To support these initiatives, AXIOS HR launched Talent Hub, an integrated program for internship identification and management, in late 2016. Talent Hub connects students seeking meaningful internship experiences with growing small to mid-sized companies.
For interns, Talent Hub provides real work experience, leadership development and soft skills training, connections to housing and other resources, and professional networking opportunities. Companies supporting Talent Hub receive improved access to talent, representation at career fairs, onboarding coordination, employment feedback, and the ability to “test drive” workers for permanent employment.
