Aflac Lands on Black Enterprise Magazine's List of 40 Best Companies for Diversity

/PRNewswire/ -- Aflac today announced that the Georgia-based insurance provider has been named to Black Enterprise magazine's list of the Top 40 Best Companies for Diversity. It is the fifth consecutive year the company has been named to the prestigious list.

Aflac, with an employee base comprised of 40 percent minorities, and women accounting for more than half of the management team, will be listed in the magazine's July issue, appearing on newsstands on June 30. Nearly 70 percent of Aflac's overall workforce is women.

"Our commitment to diversity has created an environment where wide-ranging ideas have helped our company grow," Aflac chairman and CEO Dan Amos said. "We embrace the good fortune of a diverse workforce and are proud of this recognition by Black Enterprise's magazine."

According to the magazine, Aflac demonstrates strength and outperformed peers in three of four key categories, including diversity on the Board of Directors, employee base, senior management and supplier diversity. The 40 best companies for diversity were determined through a survey of major corporations coupled with comprehensive outreach to CEOs and diversity executives working at the top 1,000 publicly traded companies and diversity executives at the 50 leading global companies with strong U.S. operations.

Aflac is one of only three Georgia companies to appear on the 2009 list.
