Perks and Programs

We asked Progressive Insurance to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Innovation Services: Specifically designed to challenge ourselves, this program/department consists of three areas: Business Innovation Garage, The Action Factory and Edison. The Business Innovation Garage is an internal think-tank for innovating products and services staffed by technology professionals who rotate in and out from our own IT group. The Action Factory is a series of one-day sessions that accelerate discussions of business problems. Lastly, Edison is a way for us to crowd source employee ideas in an online community based structure where all employees can weigh in and decide what ideas move forward for more exploration.
  • Keys to Progress: Each year, more than 100 veterans and their families get the keys to newly refurbished vehicles as part of Progressive's annual Keys to Progress® program. In partnership with the National Auto Body Council (NABC) and several other organizations, the vehicle giveaways takes place on Veterans Day at Progressive's Service Centers, one-stop facilities where Progressive handles claims and coordinates repairs for customers. Progressive is working together with local NABC member body shops to recycle and donate vehicles that have been involved or recovered in a claim. They've been fully restored for the veterans as an extension of the NABC Recycled RidesTM project.
  • Speaker Series: Employee resource groups host monthly and quarterly speaker series that bring in outside speakers for professional development, networking and personal growth. Our Young Professionals Network recently hosted Karen McCullough, who spoke about attracting and retaining millennial talent in the workforce.
  • Courage at our Core: An awareness initiative that focuses on courage as being at the heart of our core values. With a video, traveling art exhibition and series of speakers, the program conveys the importance of having courage to offer new ideas, report bad news, raise concerns and voice disagreements in the workplace.
  • NEW Learning Circles: Development program through our Network of Empowered Women that connects women from different business areas, varying tenure and job levels every other month. With set topics each session, they can share experiences and put together plans for their development. An example would be a session that focused on creating and promoting your own personal brand.
  • Corporate Art Education: We have a broad scope of educational programs and events done in conjunction with our art collection throughout the year. All are designed to reinforce the collection's purpose which is to encourage open-mindedness to what is unfamiliar and different. One event is the Art of Giving campaign which raises awareness for a community organization and the healing nature of art.
  • HealthyU: Education and incentive programs available to employees across the company that promote healthy lifestyle. Incentives include weight loss rebates, fitness center rebates and educational tools. Educational tools range from in person seminars that can also be live streamed in our locations across the country and web based courses.
  • Progressive Insurance Foundation: Employees have the opportunity to contribute to charitable organizations of their choice, and have the company match up to a certain amount per person.The heart of The Foundation is our Matching Gift program. When Progressive employees make monetary donations to qualified, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations, our company makes a percent matching contribution through The Progressive Foundation. Qualified, tax-exempt organizations include civic, cultural, educational, environmental, health care, human services and religious organizations.
  • LGBT+ Allies Unite: Company wide campaign with a goal of helping people understand what being an ally to the LGBT community means, and what actions they can take to make Progressive a more welcoming and inclusive work environment.
  • College Intern Experience: Our intern program for current college students gives hands-on experience in our technology, analyst and accounting business areas to interns. Along with interactions with company executives, interns are given project work that impacts company initiatives.

How to Get Hired

We asked Progressive Insurance for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

We look for passionate, driven individuals who enjoy a collaborative environment, value strategic thinking, embrace diversity of thought and approach, like to challenge themselves and aren't afraid to ask questions or push the envelope to reach that next step. Successful employees at Progressive thrive in a high-energy, inclusive culture that expects engagement regardless of role. They are proactive, adaptable and constructive while also taking on the responsibility of upholding respect and honesty in the workplace. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Finding ways to connect with Progressive outside of the traditional application process can always help you stand out. Take the extra step to get to know us through our social media presence, website or sites like Glassdoor. Use that information to build relationships and network. For example, connect with recruiters who recruit for an area you are interested in on sites like LinkedIn. Or, find out what upcoming events we may be hosting or participating in, and you can meet us face to face.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We're always looking for candidates who have a passion for helping others.  In our claims offices across the country, we look for entry-level and seasoned Claims Adjusters to join our team. We also have six major customer care call center locations (Cleveland, Tampa, Austin, Phoenix, Colorado Springs, Sacramento) where we hire Inbound Sales Reps and Customer Service Reps.  Additionally, tech and analyst roles continue to be a focus for us.  We work with big data, so we're always looking for data scientists, data analysts and statistical analysts.  We're also always evolving our technology to find better more efficient ways to satisfy our customers needs. So, we hire Systems Test Engineers, Systems Engineers and Software Developers.
