MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio--November 19, 2012: --Car insurance company Progressive is one of the nation's Top 100 Military Friendly Employers, according to G.I. Jobs. Each year, the magazine ranks companies based on criteria such as long-term commitment to military hiring, Reserve/Guard policies and veteran training programs.

“Being recognized again by G.I. Jobs' as one of the country's Top 100 Military Friendly Employers is a huge honor and a reflection of our commitment to the military. We work hard to attract military veterans to our company and appreciate their tremendous contributions to our success.”
