Share:

The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV)
today announced that it has been named a Best Place to Work for
Disability Inclusion by Disability:IN and the American Association of
People with Disabilities. The Disability Equality Index® (DEI) is a
national benchmarking tool that measures a company's inclusive
disability practices and policies related to organizational culture,
leadership, accessibility, employment, community engagement, support
services and supplier diversity. Travelers was among 91 companies that
achieved a score of 100 percent on this year's DEI.

"We are honored to be recognized as a leader in providing a supportive
environment for people with disabilities," said Fred Colon, Chief
Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Travelers. "Our greatest competitive
advantage is our people, and we're passionate about fostering an
inclusive workplace where all employees can develop and thrive."

Diversity and inclusion is a business imperative at Travelers, and the
company supports its employees with disabilities in a number of ways. In
addition to staffing a centralized team committed to addressing employee
accommodation requests, the company launched its disAbility Diversity
Network in 2013, which is dedicated to promoting the understanding of
people with disabilities. The group has grown to include more than 1,900
employees across the company. Travelers also works with state and local
agencies in certain locations to develop career path programs for
individuals with disabilities and recently accepted an invitation to
become a member of the Autism
@ Work Employer Roundtable
.

"Through mentorships, networking events and community projects, the
disAbility Diversity Network brings people together to increase the
awareness of disabilities," said Robert Braswell, Chair of the
disAbility Diversity Network at Travelers. "By focusing on the abilities
of people, we can better leverage their unique differences and
perspectives."
