Wright-Patt CU staff to assist trailing BRAC spouses
DAYTON, Ohio (10/24/08)--Cindy Swigert, vice president of human resources at Wright-Patt CU, Dayton, Ohio, is helping civilian military spouses find employment in the Dayton area. Swigert teamed up with human resource specialists in the Miami Valley Human Resource Association to create a website that provides information on employment. The website aims to attract civilian employees from out-of-state Air Force bases to Wright-Patterson Air Force base by September 2011 (Dayton Daily News Oct. 18). Users can submit their information to the website, www.mvhra.org, and Swigert connects them with area employers. The website has received about a dozen inquiries so far. Helping spouses find jobs is crucial in helping individuals decide whether they will relocate with the federal base realignment and closure (BRAC) program, supporters told the newspaper. Wright-Patterson could gain 1,100 jobs from bases in Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Arizona and Florida. About 15% of civilian employees who could choose to relocate did so during BRAC shifts, the Daily News said. For more information, use the link.
