This past week, I had the chance to work with Combined Insurance doing their event photography as they celebrated the second year in a row voted as the United States’ most friendly employer of military personnel. They had selected to stage the event at one of the most visited attractions in the city, The Chicago Cultural Center in the Grand Army of the Republic Hall. With representatives from Combined Insurance, state and local government as well as military personnel, the hall made for a wonderful background of marble and arched windows to host the ceremony in.
Combined Insurance is the only Illinois-based company to be ranked number one on the Top 100 list, and 2016 marks the second consecutive year that the company finished in first place on the list of Military Friendly Employers. Competition for inclusion on the Top 100 list is strong, as more than 5,000 eligible companies with military recruitment programs are considered every year.
