TTi Global Boards the 17th Annual United States Coast Guard "Ice Breaker Cruise"

The TTi Global veterans hiring initiative was represented by Ron Maier and Mike Rieves at the 17th Annual "Ice Breaker Cruises" hosted by Coast Guard Station Saint Ignace, Michigan, and the US Coast Guard Cutter (USCGC) Hollyhock.

Employers from across Michigan participated in cruises held over a two day period. Guests of the cruises were given a briefing of activities prior to be taken into the Straits shipping channel. Each cruise cumulated with the crossing of the Straits of Mackinac aboard the USCGC "Hollyhock".

Built in 2013 to replace the WWII-era USCGC BRAMBLE, the USCGC HOLLYHOCK's primary missions are: aids-to-navigation (maintenance, removal and replacement), search and rescue, environmental protection and ice-breaking.

Ron Maier, TTi Global Staffing Division Account Manager commented, “The Ice Breaker Cruise is a unique opportunity.  It provides employers the opportunity to see Armed Forces and Coast Guard members in action. We are proud to have participated in this community building event. The ESGR and the US Coast Guard work in close partnership to engage employers in support of our nation’s veterans.”

TTi Global is taking a leadership role in advancing the conversation regarding veteran hiring initiatives. In 2016, they earned the bronze-level veteran-friendly certification from the Michigan’s Veteran Affairs Agency.
