14th Time Insurance Giant Appears on Prestigious List

COLUMBUS, Ga., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac, the number one provider of supplemental insurance in the United States, has been named as one of IDG Computerworld's 2013 Best Places to Work in IT. It is the 14th time that Aflac has appeared on Computerworld's prestigious list.

According to Computerworld, the Best Places to Work in Information Technology (IT) list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals. Inclusion on the list signifies that Aflac is among the top 100 organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation.

"Aflac takes great pride in consistently offering a work environment worthy of inclusion on Computerworld's list of Best Places to Work in IT," Aflac Executive Vice President and Chief Service Officer Teresa White said. "This honor validates our commitment to maintaining a diverse workforce, providing excellent benefits, and a strong adherence to ethical business practices.  We strive to make Aflac a place where people are proud to come to work each and every day."

"We applaud the organizations on the Best Places to Work in IT list for creating and sustaining dynamic IT work environments," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "This year, several new names have joined the stalwarts that make the list year after year. It's clear that the best IT workplaces are constantly raising the bar with great benefits, new learning opportunities, access to cutting-edge technologies and challenging business-critical projects."

Computerworld's annual list of Best Places to Work in IT is based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, which factor heavily in determining the rankings.

Aflac and other companies appearing on the list appear in the June 17th issue of Computerworld and Computerworld.com, along with the results of the 2013 questionnaire.
