Recognized for company culture and efforts that support veterans.
CHICAGO, May 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Military Times recognized Combined Insurance as a ‘Best for Vets’ employer for the second consecutive year—a ranking earned through focused efforts to recruit and support service members, veterans and military families.
The annual Military Times ‘Best for Vets’ rankings are the result of a rigorous review process. Military Times invites companies to fill out its nearly 100-question survey, tests to ensure the accuracy of responses and carefully evaluates survey data. In their ninth year, the rankings evaluate a company’s culture, veteran recruiting, veteran policies and accommodations for members of the National Guard and reserves.
“At Combined Insurance, we take pride in hiring our nation’s military service members and their families, because we value their skills, determination and goodwill,” said Bob Wiedower, VP, Sales Development and Military Programs. “This ranking affirms our commitment to providing meaningful employment and giving back to those who serve our country.”
Wiedower is a decorated veteran himself, having served 22 years in the United States Marine Corps, where he retired as a Squadron Commanding Officer.
As a leading provider of individual and group supplemental accident & health, disability, and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, Combined Insurance announced efforts to hire 2,000 more veterans by 2019.
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 and provided support to numerous military and veteran-focused organizations, such as Luke’s Wings, The Fisher House Foundation, USO of Illinois and Heartland Alliance – Support Services for Veteran Families (SSVF).
Combined Insurance has received accolades throughout the years for its veteran-friendly corporate practices. The company was named a Top 5 Military Friendly® Employer in 2018 by G.I. Jobs—marking the seventh consecutive year that Combined Insurance has made the Top 10 employer list and fourth consecutive year in the Top 5.
