Combined Insurance Recognized by Victory Media as Number One Military Spouse Friendly Employer®
Supplemental insurance provider also named top overall employer in Insurance category

GLENVIEW, Ill., May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health, and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, is the number one Military Spouse Friendly Employer in the country. Victory Media, publishers of Military Spouse magazine, recognized Combined Insurance as the number one overall employer at the Starbucks/Capital One Military Spouse Town Hall held at the Army Navy Country Club in Washington, D.C. yesterday. Combined Insurance was also honored as the top Military Spouse Friendly Employer in the Insurance category.

Victory Media named Combined Insurance the number one Military Spouse Friendly Employer in the country in both the Overall and Insurance categories at a ceremony on May 4, 2016.

Victory Media's annual Military Spouse Friendly Employers list recognizes those companies that hire spouses of active duty service members and promote workforce development policies that acknowledge the unique challenges of military life and the skills that military spouses learn through those challenges.

"Victory Media recognized our organization as the number one Military Friendly® Employer in the country in both 2015 and 2016, validating our efforts to create meaningful employment opportunities for our military veterans once they leave the service," said Arthur Kandarian, SVP, Business Development for Combined Insurance. "But, it is equally important to us to support our military while they are serving our country. The best way for us to do that is by providing career opportunities for military spouses that offer them the flexibility they need to manage their unique military lifestyles. This is a very exciting achievement for Combined Insurance, and confirms that we have created an effective program."

The annual Military Friendly® survey is open to companies with $100 million or more in annual revenue. A portion of the survey considers specific recruiting and retention practices and policies for military spouses, including whether companies:

  • provide spouses with time off while a service member is deployed;
  • offer flexibility for spouses who are managing the nuances of military life; and
  • work to keep spouses employed when they inevitably have to relocate.

"More than ever before, companies like Combined Insurance are recruiting from this trusted and valuable workforce," said Kate Dolack, editor-in-chief of Military Spouse magazine. "Military spouses are expert multi-taskers. They thrive under pressure, and are highly educated and mobile. Organizational leaders recognize these attributes and want them to be part of their workforce."
