COLUMBUS, Ga., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac Incorporated today was named the 47th best company to work for in America according to the results of FORTUNE magazine's ninth annual "100 Best Companies To Work For" survey. The leading insurer moved up 18 places from last year to earn a top 50 spot on the highly sought-after list.

FORTUNE polled randomly selected employees at each of the U.S.-based companies selected for the process.
Aflac employees cited company benefits, corporate programs and employee appreciation celebrations as reasons for job satisfaction. Survey rankings are currently available at www.fortune.com and will be featured in FORTUNE's January 23, 2006 print issue available on stands January 16.
