Man in fatigues holding kidUSAA does more than offer auto insurance coverage; it provides a superior work environment, according to the Army Times Publishing Company. The car insurer has been named one of the “Best for Vets,” ranking second out of 50 highlighted companies for their military-friendly work environment.

Transitioning from military to corporate life can pose a challenge for some. To aid in the transition, USAA has developed an online program, VetNet, which helps veterans adjust to their new work surroundings. The auto insurance company also has a Junior Military Officer Career Development Program to help veterans leverage their leadership experience in the business sector.

Erica Banks, the manager of the program, says the company knows military veterans have a skill set that can benefit employers.

“USAA recognizes the need for hiring veterans and knows how they can contribute to our next generation of USAA leaders who really know what it means to serve,” said Banks.

There is a large number of retired service members in the country today. The U.S. Census Bureau estimated there were 23.2 million U.S. Military veterans in the country in 2008.
