Military spouses are the backbone of military families. Studies show that supporting military spouse employment and closing the military spouse un/underemployment gap not only strengthens our nation’s economy, but also improves military readiness.
But for military spouses who want to work outside the home, the frequent relocations common to military life can seem an insurmountable barrier to building and maintaining a career. As a result, many military spouses find themselves unemployed or underemployed.
Management consulting and technology firm Booz Allen Hamilton was honored with the USAA Military Spouse Employment and Mentoring Award,USAA Military Spouse Employment and Mentoring Award,USAA Military Spouse Employment and Mentoring Award by Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, on November 1. The award is given for “demonstrated hiring and support of military spouses in their search for meaningful employment in the private sector.” Booz Allen also received the award in 2012.
