U.S. Military Pipeline was created to help our nation’s military successfully transition back into the civilian world. The core platform already exists and, with some minor modifications and a little cooperation, we can quickly expand it into a national platform to support our Military Spouses/Families. Futures Spouse Pilot focuses on the effort to provide all the resources to the Spouses at one place.
Watch as Geoff Cramer, Futures Founder and CEO, discusses the challenges facing our nation’s Military Spouses and how we can leverage the power of U.S. Military Pipeline to combat them.
We’d like to welcome you to the new site, now with a blog! Here, the Futures team will be writing about the latest and greatest news and happenings concerning talent management and career development. This week, we’re very focused on helping military spouses and their families by making Pipeline into a virtual center of excellence for employment resources, benefits, education and more!
It’s great the White House is taking the lead to help improve the lives of military families by making it a government-wide issue and not just a VA or DOD issue. Futures has done a lot of work to support military personnel and their families through Pipeline, mentoring initiatives, workshops, and other activities, and we’re thrilled to see the issue getting the national attention it deserves. We’ve always felt it was a priority to see that military spouses and children, the “silent ranks”, get the support they need, so naturally we had smiles all around at the announcement that President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Dr. Jill Biden would be promoting the welfare of military families.
We like to think we know our users really well, and we are focused squarely on helping spouses deal with the pressures that come from military life. Pressures like having to move every 12-24 months and the difficulties that presents when finding and holding a job. With connections to military spouse-friendly employers and support resources, the Military Spouse Pipeline project should provide much needed support to those who support our nation’s Soldiers. We’re really excited about it!
