A career with Aflac is more than just a job. We are committed to treating our employees like family, offering a supportive work environment with excellent benefits, competitive salaries, and award winning resources.
Our diversity efforts don't stop at our revolving doors; they extend into our community and across the globe. Whether by the diverse mix that makes up our employee base or by the diverse supplier base we strive to support with our products and business opportunities, we create an environment of understanding and empathy.
That enlightened environment allows us to serve our customers with the compassion and respect they deserve when they need us most-during life-altering events such as accidents and illnesses, or as they prepare for future expenses.
Our Diversity Council's mission further reinforces our organization's diversity efforts. The Aflac Diversity Council develops, supports, and implements diversity-related initiatives that help Aflac better achieve its business objectives.
Aflac employees enjoy a supportive work environment and organizational culture with an open-door management philosophy, excellent benefits, competitive salaries, award-winning training and development classes, advancement opportunities, Georgia's largest on-site child-care centers, a monthly employee magazine, community activities, an annual Employee Appreciation Week, and an annual holiday party for Aflac employees and their families.
Aflac is committed to creating and sustaining a work environment and company culture, where all employees of our diverse workforce can perform at their very best. We want employees to maintain a healthy work/life balance. Employees are encouraged to schedule personal time off (PTO) to enable them to attend their children's or family's activities or to take care of other personal priorities.
We're a serious company with promises to keep to more than 50 million people worldwide. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy being at the workplace and have some fun along the way! In fact, camaraderie and fun are encouraged so strongly at Aflac that they are a part of our values.
We offer a wide variety of added employee benefits, including:
On-site child-care facilities
Fitness center and walking trails

More than 19 need-based courses are offered for professional, technical, and administrative employees. Employees and leaders can chart their paths for self-development and growth.
To help develop and enhance computer skills, employees are offered a three-phase curriculum of technical training. In addition to providing job-specific technical training, Aflac offers on-site training to all employees at no cost—regardless of whether the skill is required in their current positions.
Employees are offered a variety of job-specific training and/or designations for many areas of expertise throughout Aflac. Employees receive cash awards, in addition to reimbursement of exam costs, for successfully completing the training and/or earning the designations.
Industry education and designation opportunities include on-site examinations that qualify employees for eligible advancement. Aflac pays the initial examination registration fee for each course and provides a cash award for successful completion of each course.
Because Aflac's leaders are critical to the company’s success, the company provides them a mandatory, three-level training program. Phase I provides managers with the skills and knowledge to lead, coach, develop, and motivate employees. In Phase II, officers and managers learn key skills for continuing their professional development. Phase III builds on the development from Phase II.
Employees receive training at their desks, view the current course offerings, determine if there is a class opening, register for classes, receive class confirmation, and view their educational transcripts.
