Title

Employing Military Spouses - The Force Behind the Force Series

Description/Abstract

There are unique employment challenges for military spouses due to frequent relocation and limited access to career enhancing opportunities as a result of these relocations. While veteran employment has improved over recent years due to hiring, recruiting, and retention employment initiatives, military spouse unemployment has not been similarly impacted. There are unique differences between veterans and military spouses, but proactively treating military spouses as distinct from veterans requires knowledge on the part of the employer. Thus, the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), as part of its broader employment research efforts, and with the generous financial support and collaboration of Prudential Financial, Inc., is exploring the topic of military spouse employment. This “Force Behind the Force” series includes a collection of complimentary products geared toward educating employers, hiring managers, and human resource professionals interested in hiring and retaining military spouses.
