LATINA Style Applauds Aflac for Its Commitment to Workforce Diversity

/PRNewswire/ -- Aflac has been recognized among the corporate elite in the 2008 LATINA Style 50 Report, which sets the standard for corporate America's sensitivity to Latinas' needs and goals in the workplace identifying companies that provide the best career opportunities for Latinas in the United States.

This year, the magazine's annual awards ceremony will celebrate its 11- year anniversary and honor the LATINA Style 50 companies during a Diversity Leaders Conference on February 5, 2009, in Washington, D.C.

"It is a great honor for the Aflac family to be recognized among LATINA Style's 50 best companies in America for the ninth year," said Brenda Mullins, second vice president and diversity officer for Aflac Human Resources. "We value our talented and diverse workforce and pride ourselves in creating an environment that fosters career advancement opportunities for all our employees."

More than 1,000 companies responded to LATINA Style's questionnaire and were evaluated based on issues that LATINA Style readers identified as most important to them in the workplace. Among the principal areas of evaluation are number of Latina executives, mentoring programs, Latina board members, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, dependent/child care support, employee benefits, women's issues, job retraining, affinity groups and Hispanic relations. Evaluations for the 2008 annual report were based on 2007 data.
