Travelers Recognized for Military-Friendly Culture

Company Release - 9/3/2020 9:00 AM ET

Named a Best for Vets Employer by Military Times for seventh consecutive year

HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV) today announced that it has been named to the Military Times Best for Vets: Employers list for the seventh consecutive year. Organizations were selected based on a survey of their policies and practices related to the recruitment and retention of veterans, the employment of military spouses and accommodations provided to members of the National Guard and reserves.

“It’s an honor to be listed as a top company for veterans,” said Diane Kurtzman, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Travelers. “We have a long history of supporting the military community and have found that those with military experience bring an invaluable and versatile set of skills to our company.”

Travelers fosters a military-friendly culture in a number of ways, including through its:

  • Military and Veterans & Allies Diversity Network, a resource group dedicated to promoting veterans’ career development and building awareness of veterans’ skills and experiences. Since its launch in 2013, the network has grown to more than 3,200 members nationally.
  • Focused recruitment efforts, where employees with previous military experience build relationships with national military and veteran organizations. This helps the company actively recruit transitioning service personnel for roles such as catastrophe responders, claim adjusters, customer service representatives, investigators, technology specialists, nurses, risk control consultants and underwriters.
  • Benefits for employees deployed on active duty, which include benefits continuation and leave-of-absence policies. The company provides full benefits and supplements employees’ military pay for up to five years of their deployment.

The company has also signed the Statement of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve at both state and national levels, reaffirming its commitment to service members and their families.
