Combined Insurance recently welcomed Illinois Chair of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) , Mr. Ron Bacci, to our office to preside over the Statement of Support (SoS) signing ceremony with our President, Brad Bennett. By signing the SoS, we reaffirmed our ongoing commitment to recognize, honor and support our Reservists and to comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).
As a top military friendly employer, we have a history of being supportive of our military Veterans, military spouses, Reservists and related charities.
By signing the SoS today, we continue to affirm that commitment.
Despite the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), which protects Reservists from workplace discrimination due to their service, many Reservists find it difficult to find civilian employment when they disclose their military status. Many companies are concerned about future deployments and complying with USERRA’s requirements. Negative stereotypes also cause reluctance to hire Reservists. Far too many employers think of the stereotypical version of a military member when a resume comes across their desk with service experience.

By signing the SoS, Combined Insurance affirms its commitment to recognize these qualities Reservists and military Veterans have to offer. We were recently recognized as a “Best for Vets” Employer by the Military Times, and a top Military Friendly® Employer by G.I Jobs® magazine, partially due to our commitment to hiring and retaining Reservists, Guardsmen and military spouses. Combined Insurance maintains an active relationship with many military-focused organizations and actively seeks employees who boast a military skill and mindset. We cherish the opportunity to give back to a segment of the population that selflessly gave so much for their country, while at the same time, improving our business by hiring the best and brightest.
It was truly an honor to meet Mr. Ron Bacci today and to reaffirm our commitment to supporting our National Guard and Reserve.
