Hamilton-Ryker was recently awarded "Regional Partner of the Year" by Goodwill Career Solutions. Welding, forklift operation, clerical, human resources, general assembly-you name it. In the six years since Hamilton-Ryker first began putting Goodwill Career Solutions clients to work across West Tennessee, there are few job descriptions they haven't filled. They have been the number one employer partner with Goodwill's Union City Career Solutions Center for three years and running. Those efforts have expanded into Madison County and across West Tennessee, making them the eighth highest employer in terms of client placements across the 48 counties Goodwill serves. Already this year, Hamilton-Ryker has placed 164 Goodwill clients into jobs in West Tennessee. Hamilton-Ryker Regional Manager Ronnie Cook says "The company stays in near contact with Goodwill Career Counselors." Cook calls the partnership with Goodwill an important asset for Hamilton-Ryker's offices in Union City, Martin, Milan, McKenzie, Paris, Covington and Jackson.
With Goodwill Career Solutions hosting job fairs, this has been a huge benefit for Hamilton-Ryker to help locate applicants even in small communities where the company doesn't have an office. Goodwill Career Counselors say Hamilton-Ryker has placed many clients who need a second chance. Just another reason why Hamilton-Ryker was chosen as this year's Goodwill "Regional Partner of the Year".
