Local Company Hiring Military Spouses
Unisys Corporation announced the company has officially joined the U.S. Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership – an employment and career initiative connecting military spouses with more than 335 partner employers that have committed to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses in portable careers.
“Unisys is honored to help further the great work of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership,” said Dale Dye, regional site executive director, U.S. & Canada Service Desk, Unisys, which was recognized today at the initiative’s annual induction ceremony held at the United States Chamber of Commerce. “We are committed to hiring military spouses as well as veterans. We have found that they bring remarkable innovation, dedication and discipline to the workplace. We are proud to provide military spouses with employment opportunities that help them fulfill their personal aspirations and strengthen their families.”
Dye oversees Unisys’ client service centers in the United States and Canada. Unisys’ newest center, in Augusta, Georgia, provides IT support services to a range of commercial and government clients, including major U.S. Department of Defense programs. Unisys works with the Fort Gordon, Georgia Cyber Center of Excellence and other state and local economic-development authorities to recruit IT professionals for the client service center.
Dr. Jill Biden launched the Military Spouse Employment Partnership on June 29, 2011, to serve spouses from all military services. The partnership is part of the Department of Defense broader Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program, which seeks to reduce the 23 percent unemployment rate experienced by military spouses and close the 25 percent wage gap currently experienced by military wives.
