Danvers, MA – Insight Service Group, Inc. (ISG) recently announced that on Oct. 18, 2023, will join the Defense Department Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program and Military Spouse Employment Partnership for an induction ceremony and annual event in Alexandria, Virginia. ISG joins more than 70 new partners to MSEP — bringing the number of employers to more than 700.
Military spouses have long struggled with maintaining employment due to PCS moves and other challenges associated with military life. Unemployment among military spouses stood at 21%, according to the 2021 Survey of Active Duty Spouses. The same year, overall civilian unemployment was 5.3%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
MSEP connects military spouses with hundreds of partner employers who commit to recruiting, hiring, promoting and retaining military spouses. Since its inception in 2011, MSEP employers have hired more than 275,000 military spouses.
Providing opportunities to spouses for meaningful employment strengthens financial stability among military families, which promotes force retention and military readiness which are essential to national security.
“We’re proud to collaborate with MSEP and supporting military spouses and service members. We are grateful for their service and sacrifice and we value the unique range of perspectives Military Spouses will bring to our company.” – John Wolf, President and COO at ISG
For those interested in viewing ISG’s induction into the partnership, the DOD will livestream the Welcome Remarks and Induction Ceremony on the Military OneSource and Spouse Education and Career Opportunities Facebook pages, and the Military OneSource YouTube channel at 2:30 p.m. EDT.
