Company takes number one in the ‘over $1billion’ revenue category by VIQTORY - 08/08/2018
Combined Insurance, a Chubb company, announced today that it has earned VIQTORY’s highest honor as the nation’s number one Military Friendly® Employer in the over $1B revenue category for 2019. This is the company’s eighth consecutive year on the top 10 employer list and fifth consecutive year in the top five.
“It is truly an honor to once again be named the nation’s number one Military Friendly® Employer for 2019,” said Bob Wiedower, Vice President of Sales Development and Military Programs at Combined Insurance. “Our company is committed to providing veterans, military spouses and their family members an opportunity to serve and use the skills developed throughout their service to build a meaningful career with us. We value the qualities that veterans can bring to the workforce, and look forward to the positive contributions veterans bring to our organization and our communities.”
Since launching its veteran recruiting program in 2010, the company has:
- Hired more than 4,450 veterans, military spouses and their family members
- Announced plans to hire 2,000 more veterans by the end of 2019
- Joined the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership
- Announced the company will grant any veteran or military spouse a job interview
In addition to providing meaningful employment, Combined Insurance also gives back to military and veteran-focused charities through employee volunteerism and corporate donations. The company has given back to organizations, such as Luke's Wings, The Fisher House Foundation, USO of Illinois and Heartland Alliance – Support Services for Veteran Families (SSVF).
The Military Friendly® Employers list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for thousands of federal contractors nationwide, input of military employees and responses to the proprietary, data driven Military Friendly® Employers survey from participating companies.
The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weightings were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by Ernst & Young.
Combined Insurance will be showcased along with other 2019 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2019 issue of Military Spouse Magazine. The list of all the 2019 Military Friendly ® Employers can be found at MilitaryFriendly.com.
