Progressive Car Insurance Named One of the 50 Best Places to Work for Military Veterans


Recruiting efforts, reserve policies and corporate culture help land Progressive on the Military Times EDGE “Best for Vets” list

MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio - Military Times EDGE named Progressive car insurance to its 2010 Best for Vets list. Each year, the magazine chooses the 50 best U.S. companies for veterans based on four criteria: recruiting; training and mentoring; reserve policies; and corporate culture.

Progressive recruits on military job boards, at job fairs and in military publications. It also connects with veterans through the U.S. Department of Defense’s Transition Assistance Program, or TAP. TAP helps veterans make the transition from military to civilian life. In addition, Progressive offers 100 percent differential pay to active-duty reservists. This means that reservists who earn less in the military than they do at Progressive don’t face a pay cut because Progressive makes up the difference. And, Progressive continues to provide medical benefits for active-duty reservists and their families.

“Employees with different backgrounds and life experiences bring new abilities and points of view to the workplace,” said Chris Humlicek, military recruiting manager for Progressive. “We’ve found veterans tend to do well at Progressive because they understand the importance of having objectives and they know how to apply their training, including leadership and discipline, to their jobs.”
