Cigna Earns Military Friendly® Designation For Strong Veterans Hiring Programs

Cigna (NYSE: CI), a global health service company, was designated as a Military Friendly ® Employer by Victory Media, which provides its list of Military Friendly Employers to service members and their families, helping them discover post-military career opportunities. Companies that have earned this designation are deemed to have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses.

Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly Employer designation are evaluated using publicly available data from federal agencies, personal opinion data from veteran employees and proprietary Military Friendly survey data from participating organizations. More than 200 companies participated in the survey.

"Cigna's commitment to veterans runs deep, and includes a Colleague Resource Group within the company to focus on the needs of our employees as well as customers who are veterans, and those veterans and their caregivers within the communities where Cigna operates," said Cigna President and CEO David M. Cordani.

Other examples of how Cigna supports veterans includes the company's launch of a free support line for all veterans and their families nationwide - available by calling 855.244.6211, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - and a Cigna Foundation grant of $300,000 to the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) to help veterans meet their life goals through connections to education, medical and legal resources and benefits.
