Work with a carrier that cares: Aflac

It's not difficult to find Fortune 200 companies that tout their investment in matters of social justice, ethics and environmental responsibility. The difference with Aflac is that we’ve been doing it for decades.

From the beginning, Aflac was rooted in “The Aflac Way” — a guiding principle of respect, care and transparency. That takes form first and foremost with how we treat our employees, partners and customers. It also comes to life in things like our diversity, equity and inclusion program, and it comes to life in our 16 consecutive appearances on Ethisphere’s annual list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. 1

This isn’t just a nice benefit of working with Aflac. It’s an assurance that when you include Aflac in your portfolio, you’re offering businesses an opportunity to partner with a company that has a positive impact on society, which 67% of consumers say is important when determining which organizations they choose to support.2
