Supporting partnerships that support our veterans
Learn about how QBE’s work with vendor Veracity Research Company goes beyond the job
Combatting fraud isn’t the only thing QBE has in common with one of our key partners – Veracity Research Company Investigations (VRC). Both companies share a strong commitment to supporting those who served our country.
QBE works with VRC as an investigative partner helping us succeed through fraud mitigation, analytics support, claims investigation and other key services. VRC’s work ethic culture is based on three main principles: truthfulness, accuracy, and integrity. These principles have a strong connection with our country’s military – and so does VRC.
“Unfortunately, many who come out of the military have a skill set that is sometimes overlooked because they’ve spent time serving our country instead of pursuing an educational degree,” said Marcus Doyle, CEO of VRC. “I served in the United States Army, many of my family members are veterans and I know first-hand that the experience gained in the military is extremely valuable in the professional world.”
At VRC, they’ve looked to military organizations for many of their recruitment efforts and in turn counted military experience toward any position in their company’s educational requirements. “We’ve gained the reputation as the GI PIs,” said Marcus. “Those out of the service have a strong work ethic and dedication to reaching a common goal, which has truly boosted performance and morale at our company.”
With nearly 28% of their employee population as former military, it’s not the only source of their employment, but they’ve made a commitment to look at veteran talent pipelines equally.
Brian Wilson, VP Special Investigations – Claims, works closely with VRC and is a member of our Valor Business Resource Group, whose focus is to provide support for veteran employees, as well as employment opportunities for the millions of veterans who are unemployed in America. It’s through Brian’s strong knowledge of VRC that QBE entered into the partnership they’re a part of now.
“In working with VRC, our teams are interconnected through our common fraud fighting goals and shared values in how we get the work done,” said Brian. “The services their company offers are top notch, and their work helping the veteran community is truly impressive. VRC has been recognized as the Disabled American Veteran’s employer of the year and that award is one example of the many ways that they support veterans.”
VRC supports veterans beyond hiring and a shining example of that is the Denton County Veterans Center. More than 45,000 Veterans call Denton County home. The Veterans Center serves as a single location for service providers to improve lives – from helping veterans with applying for jobs, handling a crisis to simply asking for advice.
Marcus was involved in getting the veterans center up and running on a personal and company level. Making contributions beyond writing a check, the result is a sustainable, safe, good place to work that gets veterans the help they need.
In addition to our Valor Business Resource Group, QBE supports veteran organizations such as FourBlock and Wounded Warrior Project through volunteer and Veterans Day events, as well as our Foundation grants, employee giving and the QBE Shootout.
In the future, Marcus and Brian are looking forward to highlighting efforts to help those who served or bring attention to veteran related events. Stay tuned for more on what Valor will be involved with in 2020 and potential opportunities for QBE staff to participate in a number of exciting ways.
