Travelers has a long, proud history of supporting the armed forces dating back to our original founding in 1853. Today, we proudly serve home to over 1,000 veterans who are currently employed across a number of functions such as Claim, Customer Service, Investigations, Information Technology, Nursing, Risk Control and Underwriting.
Additionally, our Military and Veterans Diversity Network, which consists of more than 2,000 employees, is dedicated to promoting veterans’ career development and building awareness of veterans’ skills and experiences. Here at Travelers we value former military as well as military spouses and celebrate their leadership, discipline, pride and commitment to making our company even more successful.
Travelers proudly partners with several organizations that assist veterans with their transition to civilian life. From career mentoring to sponsoring events, we collaboratively go beyond employment opportunities to expand our outreach and enhance our commitment. Some of our key partnerships include:
Career Mentoring and Sponsorships
Since 2010, Travelers has supported American Corporate Partners (ACP), a national nonprofit organization focused on helping returning veterans discover their next career. Through one-on-one mentoring, networking and online career advice, ACP engages and empowers former military as they transition into the civilian workforce. Our partnership has helped to create over 200 life-changing mentorships for hundreds of post-9/11 veterans.
In 2016, the Travelers Foundation awarded a $1 million grant to fund Team Rubicon’s Mobile Training Center, a new disaster response outreach program. Team Rubicon, a nonprofit organization, unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams after disasters, all while providing veterans with a new sense of purpose, community and identity.
The Mobile Training Center will travel across the U.S. to provide large-scale training events, recruit volunteers and establish relationships with state and local emergency management agencies. This partnership also expands volunteer and disaster-response training opportunities for Travelers employees.
AcademyWomen is a global nonprofit organization that offers mentorship and training to empower women to reach their full potential as leaders. Efforts are centered on providing an open forum through which veterans can safely share their stories, offer guidance and provide others with the tools necessary to achieving success. Travelers has proudly sponsored the Officer Women Leadership Symposium annually since 2009.
The Private Public Partnership Office (P3O) develops, integrates and directs partner relations for the Army Reserve. Travelers shares career opportunities across the country through P3O employment specialists.
Veteran Recruiting (VR), a division of Astound Virtual, has changed the way military-friendly employers, service members, veterans and military spouses connect as it relates to the job search. Travelers is proud to be one of the first employers to participate in their virtual events, which support veterans as they search for career opportunities.
Military Officers Job Opportunities (MOJO) is an exclusive, quarterly hiring event that pairs transitioning military professionals and veterans who have degrees with global corporations at various locations nationally.
