About Us

Businesses need a talented workforce. Workers need the right skills to compete for available jobs. The Talent Investment Agency (TIA) was created to bridge the gap between talent and employers. This is accomplished through programs focused on job preparedness, career-based education, worker training, employment assistance and unemployment programs.



We provide a demand-driven talent system that supports business growth and a diverse skilled workforce through strategic partnerships.


Michigan is a model state for low unemployment, labor force participation, and talent retention and growth.
