Across the Country

(instead of nearly 2,150 jobs).

The corrected release reads:

PROGRESSIVE® INSURANCE SLATED TO HIRE NEARLY 1,400
PEOPLE BY END OF YEAR

Top Workplace Continues to Fuel Economy in Northeast Ohio and
Across the Country

The
Progressive Group of Insurance Companies
plans to fill nearly 1,400
jobs across the country by the end of 2015. Positions include IT,
Analyst, Call Center, Claims and Corporate roles and span locations from
Austin, Texas to its headquarters in Mayfield Village, Ohio. Progressive
has consistently been named a top workplace in Cleveland,
Tampa,
and Austin,
and it was named to Glassdoor’s
List of Top Companies for Culture & Values
in 2014.

Progressive has also been recognized as a leader in the IT and tech
fields, having recently been featured on the CIO
100
list for the 12th time. The annual award program
recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest
level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology.
This year’s win was attributed to Progressive’s Business Innovation
Garage (BIG), an internal think-tank for innovating products and
services. BIG exists in a virtual testing environment, and brings
together partners across the company to collect and cultivate business
solutions, with the end goal of exploring and testing new ideas.

“We pride ourselves on our culture of innovation and experimentation and
we’re confident that potential candidates can see that through projects
like BIG,” said Neil Lenane, national recruiting director at
Progressive. “We recently conducted a survey with Wakefield Research
that found the majority of millennials in IT are more swayed by a job
that interests them than the location of the job or even the salary –
we’ve addressed this all along by allowing our employees the flexibility
to work on projects they’re passionate about.”

Positions are available across the country, including Progressive’s
major locations in Ohio, Colorado, Florida, Texas, Arizona, and
California, with IT and Analyst positions focused on Big Data projects
concentrated in Cleveland and Colorado Springs. There are also ETS
positions available, which involve working with the Enterprise
Technology Services team and include roles such as System Engineers and
Software Developers.

Flexible work arrangements, including working from home and compressed
work weeks; performance bonuses; a casual dress code; on-site medical
facilities for employees and their families at select locations; and
fitness centers at select locations are just some of the amenities that
Progressive offers. All positions offer paid training. In addition,
employees also receive medical, dental, vision and life insurance
benefits.

Progressive employees also enjoy:

  • aerobics, spinning and yoga classes, along with access to discounted
    Weight Watchers® at select locations
  • Vitality Wellness Program – an interactive and personalized wellness
    program that makes it easy for you to live your healthiest life
  • access to eight Employee
    Resource Groups
    . ERG’s are employee-run organizations with common
    interests or backgrounds, like the LGBT community or young
    professionals, but that are open to all
  • a world-renowned contemporary art collection
  • potential bonuses based on company performance
  • parenting resources, such as a Child/Adult Care Flexible Spending
    Account, maternity services, adoption assistance, and Resources For
    Living – a program of free services which includes an Employee
    Assistance Program and Worklife Services.
  • employee-organized running clubs at select locations
