Progressive Insurance announced Tuesday its plans to hire 7,500 new employees in 2018, including 1,300 in Cleveland alone.
The corporation says it is making the hires "to support the growing needs of its business." The openings include positions in IT and analyst roles, corporate functions, and customer care and claims roles.
Said Chief Human Resources Officer Lori Niederst:
Progressive is a company where you can come for a job and build a career, in any business area from technology to customer service. For example, we have many people in high-level leadership positions who started their careers in claims or in our call centers. Progressive values you as an individual, and the uniqueness you bring to our organization.
In addition to Cleveland, new workers will also be hired in Austin, Colorado Springs, Phoenix, Sacramento, and Tampa. Potential applicants will also not be asked about their salary history, a new policy for the company.
"Our Progressive culture is rooted in our Core Values." Niederst added. "These values aren't just a poster on the wall—they guide our business decisions and define how we treat each other."
