The Untapped Merit Of Military Spouses

By Allison F. Capozza, Marketing Director, and Christine Rose, HR Manager, Wednesday, May 03, 2023

At Thayer Leadership, we consistently hear from corporate leaders who want to support veterans and their families but do not know how to start. As a veteran-owned company with 84% faculty with former military service and 64% staff who are military spouses or former military service, we love giving proven advice about how to support military families. Often overlooked, undervalued, underemployed or unemployed, military spouses offer an opportunity for corporations to show their support of military families and simultaneously discover a uniquely qualified talent pool.

To bring a personal perspective to what HR leaders should understand when tapping into this talent pool, we talked with several military spouses at Thayer Leadership in West Point, New York:

* What should you know about employing military spouses?
* How has your career been impacted as a result of being a military spouse?
* When unable to find a job, what do you do to fill your time?
* What do you wish employers knew about military spouses as part of the hiring and retention process?
