Military Spouse Employment Advisory Council (MSEAC)

The Military Spouse Employment Advisory Council (MSEAC) is one of the first private sector-led councils formed specifically to address military spouse unemployment. The MSEAC concentrates on connecting spouses to national and local employers of every size and industry.

This select group of companies – with proven track records and innovative spouse recruitment initiatives of their own – focuses not on words but on actions that address the unique employment challenges that military spouses face. Hiring Our Heroes then works to spread these best practices throughout America’s business community.

“This effort is not about aggregating numbers, tracking spouses or reaching quotas. It is about the top companies in our country figuring out how to find and keep the best talent - the kind of talent that military spouses have to share.” – Derek Blake, Vice President of Marketing for founding MSEAC member La Quinta Inns & Suites
