Learning and Development in Claim

Claim strives to attract, retain and develop world-class talent. We are committed to the success of our Claim professionals and support them by providing the tools needed to achieve that success. 

We continually strive to offer training opportunities that will assist our employees not only as they get started, but throughout their career. Using a variety of methods such as live classroom, online coursework and virtual training sessions, we continue to find ways to develop the technical, system and leadership skills of our claim staff. 

Claim University

Travelers’ flagship Claim University training facility in Windsor, Conn. is designed to build on our long tradition of providing customers with highly-trained, expert Claim professionals. The 108,000-square-foot educational facility provides Travelers’ Claim professionals the in-depth training and expertise they need to provide knowledgeable, accurate and efficient claim service for customers and agents.

Twenty full-time staff training staff are located on-site at Claim University, augmented by subject matter experts from our nearby insurance operations headquarters and Risk Control lab. Claim University provides the opportunity for hands-on training for about 8,500 students annually through a variety of on-site labs, including: 

  • A property lab with two full-size, fully-furnished resident homes complete with full mechanicals; one full-size, fully-stocked commercial convenience store with full mechanicals; and numerous smaller-scale mock-up demonstrations showing construction detail to support material identification, damage reparability and installation procedures
  • An auto lab containing approximately 30 damaged vehicles to demonstrate various types of damage; working demonstrations of different auto mechanical, electrical and body systems; and a frame machine, lift and paint booth
  • An industry-first heavy equipment lab with construction equipment, crane boom, dump truck, tractor-trailers, refrigerated truck and numerous smaller mechanical mock-ups
