Travelers (NYSE: TRV) today announced it has been named to the Military Times EDGE “Best for Vets” list in recognition of its military-friendly hiring practices, benefits, training opportunities and corporate culture. The ranking is based on an annual survey focusing on an employer’s commitment to hire and retain veterans.
“We are honored and proud to be recognized as a military-friendly company,” said John Clifford, Executive Vice President of Human Resources at Travelers. “Travelers actively recruits veterans and transitioning personnel for openings with our company. Individuals with military experience have demonstrated their ability to handle challenging situations, and bring many strong attributes to our organization. These qualities, along with a strong work ethic, have proven to be a successful combination for our business and our culture.”

- Since 2011, Travelers and its employees have been active participants in the mentorship program led by American Corporate Partners, a group dedicated to helping veterans transition from the armed forces to the civilian workforce.
- Travelers works with organizations such as Academy Women, which support and enable women from the nation’s officer development programs to reach their full potential as leaders, and the Service Academy Career Conference, a job fair for graduates of U.S. military academies.
- In 2013, Travelers launched a Military and Veterans network, an internal employee resource group that has grown to nearly 1,000 members in just one year.
