GLENVIEW, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health and life insurance products, and an ACE Group company, is pleased to announce it has been recognized by U.S. Veterans Magazine on its 2015 Best of the Best list of Top Veteran-Friendly Companies.
U.S. Veterans Magazine polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for this year’s Best of the Best evaluations. The resulting list of honorees is compiled from extensive research and data designed to identify organizations that qualify as Top Veteran-Friendly Companies due to their proactive outreach within their industry to recruit and assist veterans and military families seeking employment and other business opportunities. The magazine’s goal is to open up and expand opportunities for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans, spouses, and veteran business owners.
“We are proud and excited to be named as one of the Top Veteran-Friendly Companies by U.S. Veterans Magazine,” notes Joseph Pennington (USN Retired), military programs manager for Combined Insurance. “This recognition is a testament to the resounding success of our military recruitment campaign. Since launching the veteran recruiting program in mid-2010, Combined Insurance has hired more than 2,500 veterans and those with a military background, and plans to hire 2,800 more over the next two years.”
Arthur Kandarian (Col. USA Retired), senior vice president, business development at Combined Insurance, adds: “All of us at Combined Insurance are deeply appreciative of being named by U.S. Veterans Magazine as a Top Veteran-Friendly Company. Most of all, we are proud to be part of the nationwide corporate initiative to provide meaningful employment to the men and women who have selflessly served in defense of our country. It is our honor and privilege to now have the opportunity to assist them and their families.”
Combined Insurance has also been recognized by Victory Media (publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine) as the number one Military Friendly Employer on its 2015 list of Top 100 Military Friendly® Employers.
