American Fidelity Assurance Company once again made FORTUNE magazine’s and the Great Place to Work Institute’s Best Workplaces for Diversity list.

At American Fidelity, we’re committed to having an inclusive culture to enable innovation, foster a great place to work for all environment and help us be a different opinion for our Customers.”

— Jeanette Rice, AF President and COO

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, USA, December 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — American Fidelity Assurance Company once again made FORTUNE magazine’s and the Great Place to Work Institute’s Best Workplaces for Diversity list.

“At American Fidelity, we’re committed to having an inclusive culture to enable innovation, foster a great place to work for all environment and ultimately help us be a different opinion for our Customers,” said AF President and COO Jeanette Rice. “We know that our ability to embrace the differences between individuals is key to our business success as it promotes a culture that embraces many views and perspectives.”

To determine the list, Great Place to Work analyzed the experiences of women, people of color, LGBTQ people, those who are Boomers or older, and people who have disabilities, comparing their survey results to their Colleagues’ at the same organizations. All told, these anonymous survey responses on more than 60 survey questions reflecting day-to-day workplace treatment represented more than 4.4 million employees’ work lives.

At American Fidelity, 52 percent of all leadership roles are held by women and the team is more than 13 percent ethnically diverse. Age-wise, the Company is 22 percent Baby Boomer, 47 percent Generation X and 31 percent Millennial.

Having an inclusive company starts with recruiting. To ensure diversity in recruiting efforts, AF partners with a staffing agency focused on diversity staffing and had an external firm conduct a Diversity and Inclusion Diagnosis Communications Audit of recruiting materials.

Although American Fidelity has long focused on creating a diverse, inclusive environment, they recently took things a step further by implementing unconscious bias training for Colleagues in Corporate and Human Resources, with plans to expand the training in the future.

Inclusion doesn’t just apply to Company Colleagues. American Fidelity provides voluntary employee benefits to our Customers in niche markets and tries mirror Customers as much as possible. For example, if a school needs Spanish-speaking representatives to explain employee benefits, AF will develop a team that best fits the needs of the Customer including bilingual managers, Colleagues and Sales representatives.

“The 2018 Best Workplaces for Diversity are at the forefront of creating workplaces that are better for business and better for their people,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These workplaces not only pay attention to how diverse their workforce and management teams are, but close critical gaps in how all their people are treated and developed day-to-day.”
