12 G.I. JOBS | DECEMBER 2018 | GIJOBS.COM "Veterans exemplify commitment and courage, two important qualities that align with both Combined and Chubb's valued traits," said Kevin Goulding, Com- bined Insurance president. "This magnificent award is a testament to our commit- ment to doing the right thing – hiring and supporting vet- erans and their family mem- bers who have sacrificed so much for our country." Since setting up its mili- tary program in 2010, Com- bined has hired more than 2,500 of America's veterans and pledged to hire 2,000 more by the end of 2019. In- cluding military spouses and family members, the compa- ny has put more than 4,400 members of the military and veteran community to work since 2010, which helped Combined Insurance also earn recognition as the #1 Military Spouse Friendly Employer ® for 2019. "As a retired Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy, I know how important it is to join an organization where veterans can continue to serve others and expand their skills in a civilian career," said Mike Stevens, publisher of G.I. Jobs. "I am proud to give this award to Combined Insurance and recognize them for their dedication to supporting the military community." For Ridley, that support includes the chance to create her own destiny – a prospect she found irre- sistible when a Combined Insurance recruiter called. Law enforcement? Sure. Corrections? Check. Defense? Duh. Insurance? Of course. Wait … insurance? Really? Really. Roneisha Ridley credits her success as a sales agent for Combined Insurance to the company's parallels to the military. And she's been on the job less than a year. "The structure, training and sales systems that are in place are the things that feel familiar to the military," said Ridley, who served 13 years in the Army. "The award system is almost like getting awards in the military. The potential to move into management is mirrored to the military promotion system." Combined Insurance, a Chubb company that provides individual supple- mental accident, disability, health and life insurance products, leverages those similarities in its efforts to recruit and help America's veterans succeed. It's work- ing. Combined Insurance was ranked as the #1 2019 Military Friendly ® Employer in the over $1 billion reve- nue category. It's the compa- ny's eighth consecutive year in the top 10 of the Military Friendly ® Employers list and the fifth consecutive year in the top five. FINDING A CORPORATE STRUCTURE THAT'S SIMILAR TO THE MILITARY IS EASIER WITH SOME CIVILIAN CAREERS THAN OTHERS.
