Military Veterans Enrich Combined Insurance in the Corporate Offices and in the Field
This month we are shining a spotlight on our company culture and inviting our readers to learn more about what’s important to our employees, the priority we put on giving back to the places where we live and work, and our emphasis on diversity and inclusion.
One of our core values lies in supporting our nation’s veterans; by hiring them, supporting them while they’re employed here, and by giving back to veteran-focused organizations. We are committed to being a top military-friendly company, and we have a tradition of supporting military veterans by providing them with meaningful career opportunities and supporting related causes.
Combined Insurance values veterans’ talents and strengths
Being successful in the armed forces requires self-motivation, discipline, and drive: qualities that also help employees achieve success in the corporate world. We truly value the qualities veterans bring with them to the workplace and we take special pride in helping individuals who have sacrificed so much for our country.
