Points of Light Names Aflac One of the 50 Most Community-Minded Companies in the US


Jul 11, 2019 (5 days ago) |
COLUMBUS, Ga: Aflac, the leader in supplemental insurance sales at U.S. worksites, announced that the company has been named an honoree of The Civic 50 Award by Points of Light, the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
This marks the second consecutive year that Aflac has been included on this prestigious list of companies seeking to serve their communities in addition to their employees, customers and shareholders.

According to Points of Light, the award recognizes Aflac as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States. The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities. The Civic 50 honorees will be recognized tonight at the Points of Light Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota, where corporate citizenship leaders from across the country are gathering to discuss social innovation, civic engagement and cross-sector collaboration.

As a business, Aflac has enjoyed tremendous success for more than six decades, serving our customers in their times of need and providing significant returns for our shareholders, Aflac Chairman and CEO Dan Amos said. It is no coincidence that we have also prioritized community. Whether through our commitment to childhood cancer research and treatment, enabling our employees to work with Habitat for Humanity to build homes, or our keen commitment to diversity and inclusion, our employees' desire to make a difference inside and outside of the office has created an environment inspiring Points of Light to provide us with this recognition. Our community-driven culture has had an incredible impact on our business and our continued success.

The Civic 50 truly highlights the commitment of community and civic engagement of America's leading brands, like Aflac, said Natalye Paquin, Points of Light president and CEO. Points of Light believes that people drive change in addressing society's growing and most profound challenges. The business community plays an important role in creating and delivering innovative solutions that drive social good in the communities where they live and work.

The Civic 50 honorees are public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of $1 billion or more and are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.

The Civic 50 survey was administered by True Impact, a company specializing in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform The Civic 50 scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
