Combined Insurance Helps Military Veterans Find Jobs at Las Vegas Career
Continues Commitment to Hire Thousands of Vets
LAS VEGAS -- July 10, 2014
Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident,
disability, health and life insurance products, and an ACE Group company,
continues its commitment to help military veterans find meaningful employment
with its participation in the Non Commissioned Officers Association (NCOA)
career expo on July 15, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Golden
Nugget Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
Continuing its effort to help reduce the military veteran unemployment rate,
Combined Insurance has committed to hiring 4,000 vets by the end of 2016. To
help reach that goal, the company is further leveraging its involvement with
the NCOA, which connects experienced and diverse U.S. military talent with
America's employers, by regularly participating in the organization’s
nationwide career expos that are scheduled this year.
Recognized as a top employer of military veterans, Combined Insurance was
recently ranked 6 on G.I. Jobs magazine’s 2014 Military Friendly Employer
list. More than 5,000 eligible companies compete each year for a spot on the
list, which is made up of employers with strong military recruitment programs
and meaningful job opportunities for transitioning service members and spouses
seeking civilian employment. This was the company’s third year on the list and
the second consecutive year in the top 10. Over the past three years, Combined
Insurance has hired more than 1,300 military veterans.
“We know that military veterans can make great employees – especially for our
industry,” said Joseph Pennington, U.S. Navy retired, and military program
director for Combined Insurance. “They have very desirable traits and skills –
they can lead and be led, they are responsible, disciplined, hard-working, and
dedicated to helping others. We are excited and look forward to meeting with
and finding some excellent candidates at the NCOA career expo in Las Vegas.”
Combined Insurance also is a member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition
of leading U.S. companies whose goal is to hire 100,000 transitioning service
members and military vets by 2020, and uses other military recruiting
resources such as TAP and Fleet and Family Support Centers, the Veterans
Administration, state representatives and other local veteran organizations,
as well as military-specific job sites such as vetsuccess.gov.
The NCOA is a congressionally chartered military non-profit 501(c)(19)
organization that was established in 1960 to enhance and maintain the quality
of life for noncommissioned and petty officers in all branches of the Armed
Forces, National Guard, and Reserves. It is a leader in veteran’s employment
