A Special Thanks to our Employment Partners

A Special Thanks to our Employment Partners

Some companies truly go the extra mile for veterans and military spouses. They recognize the value that these groups bring to their workforce, and they’ve made a commitment to recruit them and improve new hire retention. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize the employers who have reached the highest status of partnership with Hire Heroes USA.

These employment partners are dedicating extensive resources to educate their staff and are taking an active role in veteran recruitment and retention. They participate in a variety of Hire Heroes USA recruitment programs, including the job board, virtual career fairs, and talent sourcing. They also use our resources to help build their brand recognition in the veteran and military spouse community through targeted email campaigns and employer spotlight webinars.

We would like to offer our sincere appreciation to all of our Diamond, Platinum, and Gold employment partners for their daily support of military veteran and spouse job seekers.

Hire Heroes USA to partner with the Department of Defense to benefit military spouses

Hire Heroes USA to partner with the Department of Defense to benefit military spouses

Veterans nonprofit Hire Heroes USA will join the Department of Defense’s Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) in a virtual ceremony Wednesday afternoon. Hire Heroes USA is one of 85 new partners to MSEP, bringing the total number to 500.

This partnership allows Hire Heroes USA to better connect with military spouses around the world who are in need of employment assistance, increasing the positive impact our free career services have on military families. It also allows Hire Heroes USA to connect to other like-minded partners within the MSEP Spouse Ambassador Network to deliver solutions and assistance at scale.

“This is yet another outstanding achievement for our Serving Spouses program in 2020. We are grateful to the Department of Defense for its recognition of our team’s efforts to empower military spouses,” said Hire Heroes USA CEO Andrew Sandoe. “We look forward to working together to serve the needs of this population in the future.”

MSEP connects military spouses with hundreds of partner employers who commit to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses. Since its inception in 2011, MSEP employers have hired more than 175,000 military spouses. In 2020 alone, the Hire Heroes USA Serving Spouses team has assisted more than 1,000 military spouses to find new careers, and the program has empowered more than 3,000 spouses to find employment since the creation of the Serving Spouses Program in 2018. 

“Hire Heroes USA is committed to veterans and their families, and we will continue to invest aggressively in these programs because there is more work to be done,” said Kelly Grivner-Kelly, Hire Heroes USA Serving Spouses program manager. “Military spouses are highly qualified for a range of careers but oftentimes face many employment obstacles due to the unique challenges of military life. These men and women, who are an essential part of the military family, also serve this country.” 

Hire Heroes USA understands the unique obstacles Military Spouses face when looking for the next step in their careers. This population of about 1 million men and women face barriers to steady employment, including frequent moves and gaps in employment. As a result, many spouses face higher rates of unemployment and underemployment than the general population despite nearly 60% of spouses having a four-year degree or higher.

Those interested in viewing the induction ceremony can watch the live stream on the Hire Heroes USA Facebook page at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. ET. The opening session will also be streamed on the Military OneSource Facebook page and the induction ceremonies will also be streamed on the Spouse Education and Career Opportunities Facebook page.
