State Farm: Military Veterans Add Incredible Value to Workplace
What do veterans and insurance have in common? It turns out a lot -- teamwork, a strong work ethic, motivation and the ability to make a contribution to communities.
“State Farm does an amazing job of creating a fun environment to learn and exchange ideas, says Gina Wilken, a 10-year U.S. Navy veteran. Wilken, who joined State Farm in 2014, says she was pleasantly surprised that working at a large corporation was so similar to her military career. ”They take time for teams to build relationships inside and outside the workplace, which really creates that personal and collaborative environment I experienced in the military.”
To assist veterans looking for a career, State Farm has a search function on their State Farm Jobs & Careers - State Farm® site that asks veterans to put in their MOS code (their military job function code). Once the code is entered, the site will pull up relevant jobs, aligning MOS skills with those they are hiring for at the company.
Veteran support continues inside of State Farm with The Military Affinity Group – a forum that brings employees together to explore how military core values and perspectives can be used to positively impact and achieve company goals.
