Military Spouse Employment & Wellbeing Partner Toolkit

Military Spouse Wellbeing Survey > Survey Toolkit

Thank you for your support in promoting the Hiring Our Heroes Reclaiming a Sense of Self through Employment event at 1 p.m. ET on February 4. During this event, we released the results from the 2020 Military Spouse Employment and Wellbeing Survey. In collaboration with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families and powered by Starbucks, we discussed this groundbreaking research and made recommendations on resources that are well suited to support military spouses on their employment journey.

To raise awareness, Hiring Our Heroes developed this social media kit. In this kit, you will find sample posts that you can use to post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn and a graphic you can use to accompany your posts.

Here are a few social media post templates that you may edit for the event you are participating in and to fit your brand’s voice.
