TRAVELERS NAMED 2019 EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR FOR DISABILITY HIRING
We are so excited to announce that Travelers has been named 2019 Employer of the Year by Lifeworks for our disability hiring initiatives!
Lifeworks, a Minnesota not-for-profit that supports individuals with disabilities, selected Travelers from about 400 companies that currently partner with the organization. Travelers’ partnership with Lifeworks extends back several years, beginning with the Business Insurance Document Management team, where both parties worked together to provide employment opportunities for candidates with disabilities.
The efforts in disability hiring that stemmed from this relationship have grown, and in 2017, Travelers launched a four-week training and work-experience program for people with disabilities, centered around our Staff Counsel Business Resource Center. Since the start of this program, more than a dozen individuals have secured full-time positions with Travelers, serving as legal operations specialists.
These initiatives are prime examples of the diverse and inclusive work environment we are dedicated to fostering at Travelers. We are also proud to be named:
- 2019 Best Places to Work by Glassdoor
- 2019 Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality by Human Rights Campaign
- 2018 Top 50 Companies for Diversity by Diversity Inc.
- 2018 Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion by Disability Equality Index
- 2018 Best for Vets Employers by Military Times
- 2019 Military Friendly Employers by Military Friendly
We know the importance of pushing past boundaries and having a workforce that represents the perspectives and ideas across race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, marital status, genetic information and sexual orientation.
