Progressive Once Again Named a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer by G.I. Jobs

For the second year in a row, G.I. Jobs magazine has named Progressive car insurance one of the nation’s Top 100 Military Friendly Employers. The magazine ranks 100 companies annually on criteria such as military hiring practices; benefits and differential pay policies for Reserve/Guard members; the percentage of new hires who are veterans; veteran training programs; and military recruitment programs.

Active-duty Reservists who work at Progressive receive 100 percent differential pay, meaning Progressive makes up the difference between the person’s regular salary and the amount they earn while on active duty. Their health insurance also remains in effect while they’re on duty.

“Because we value the experience of military veterans, we recruit on military job boards, at job fairs, and in military publications,” said Chris Humlicek, Progressive’s military recruitment director. “We’ve found that veterans tend to do well at Progressive because they’re able to adapt to changing situations, lead teams, and understand objectives.”

G.I. Jobs compiled the list from more than 5,000 entrants. Only companies with more than $500 million in revenue were eligible to compete.
