Radio Show: GMAC Workforce - MOVE-HIRE Program

Medical Device Occupations Value Education - Help In the Regional Economy Program (MOVE-HIRE)

MOVE-HIRE is a tuition free skills training program, providing industry recognized credentials, and work-based learning opportunities, including apprenticeships, on-the-job training, and internships to prepare participants for careers in the medical device industry.

Specific careers include: machinists, machine operators, metal finishers, quality assurance, packaging, and logistics. All training is tied to employment opportunities in the Greater Memphis Area. MOVE-HIRE is designed to move low wage, unemployed, and under-employed workers to high paying manufacturing careers.

MOVE-HIRE is funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.

The Greater Memphis Alliance for a Competitive Workforce (GMACWorkforce) was created in 2015, out of the Memphis and Shelby County Regional Economic Development Plan and the Greater Memphis Chamber's Chairman's Circle, in collaboration with the Brookings Institution Policy Program. Managed by Economic Development Growth Engine (EDGE), GMACWorkforce is a strategic consortium of educational institutions, workforce and community agencies, economic development entities, and employers working together to help solve Greater Memphis' skills gap.
