Military Spouses Are Poised to Fill Your Organization’s Talent Gap

Spouses of active duty military members are often assumed to be individuals whose sole purpose is keeping the home fires burning while their loved ones are deployed, training, or on other missions. This misconception overshadows the reality that 53% of military spouses are actually pursuing bona-fide careers outside the home (DMDC, 2015). Although there are in fact some military spouses, of both genders, that do support and maintain a home, the military spouse population is one that is vastly overlooked as career contributors.

Achieving work-life balance goes beyond finding time for the family

Ever feel a little guilty about taking the time for that pick-up game of basketball or a weeknight watercolor class? You shouldn’t—it’s good for you and your job.

That’s what doctoral candidate Victoria Daniel and Dr. Yujie Zhan of Wilfrid Laurier University discovered in their research titled “Wearing Many Hats: How Employee Personal Life Engagement Enriches Creativity at Work,” presented in April at the 2018 Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology in Chicago, Illinois.

The research touches on several topics in SIOP’s 2018 Top 10 Workplace Trends, including work-life balance, the changing nature of how people work, and engaging millennials in the workplace.

Raleigh, NC – October 18, 2018 – Corporate training programs can be more effective when training delivery strategies are aligned with the learners’ preferences. A new research report from Training Industry, Inc. explores these learner preferences, focusing on how learners want to learn and the match between their preferences and what organizations are actually using to deliver training.

“Today’s learners have choices,” Amy DuVernet, Ph.D., director of training manager development at Training Industry, Inc. and the researcher and author of the report. “They can find information about how to best perform their jobs from a number of sources. It’s critical that training professionals, and the training function, acknowledge this reality by providing learning and development in ways that learners want to engage.”
