BBA Talent Connect Matches Employers With Qualified Black Professionals for Inclusive Hiring and Career Advancement

Tech people

The Black Business Association of Memphis (BBA) has introduced BBA Talent Connect, a groundbreaking talent acquisition and sourcing initiative aimed at connecting businesses with qualified Black professionals. Committed to supporting Black wealth creation within the local Memphis community, the hope of the BBA Talent Connect Initiative is to provide employee placement for over 40,000 jobs.

Finding diverse potential employees who are not only qualified for a position but also align with a company’s values and goals can be quite challenging. Many organizations struggle to achieve a diverse workforce, often due to a lack of access to a wide pool of qualified candidates from different backgrounds.

However, the BBA is determined to bridge this gap through its groundbreaking initiative. BBA Talent Connect is designed to connect employers with qualified Black professionals, helping to overcome the barriers that often prevent organizations from achieving their diversity and inclusion goals. BBA Talent Connect is not only working to ensure that employers have access to a wide range of qualified candidates who can tap into different perspectives and create an inclusive work environment but also working to support qualified Black professionals in finding meaningful employment.

For employers, BBA Talent Connect offers comprehensive talent sourcing and placement solutions, streamlining the hiring process and ensuring access to a pool of highly skilled and experienced Black professionals.

To support job seekers, BBA provides a range of services including resume writing, interview preparation, and job search support. They also partner with local universities and organizations to provide college students and recent graduates access to internships and apprenticeships.

Partnered with Matchplicity®, a leading talent solutions provider, BBA Talent Connect aims to create a culture of inclusion, respect, and understanding when it comes to pairing local Memphis businesses with qualified Black professionals.
