American Fidelity Named a Great Place for Giving Back by Fortune Magazine and the Great Place to Work Institute
February 9, 2018
American Fidelity made the Great Place to Work and FORTUNE’s Best Places for Giving Back list for the third year in a row. American Fidelity ranked No. 49 and is the only Oklahoma company on the list, which is based on more than 385,000 surveys of employees across a range of industries, as well as their organizations’ charitable programs and giving.
At American Fidelity, our Colleagues’ efforts are supported by Company initiatives that include our partnership with Buchanan Elementary, OKC Thunder Book Bus, paid time off to volunteer and matching charitable contributions by the American Fidelity Foundation. Colleagues nominate charities to support each month and complete annual giving campaigns for the United Way, Allied Arts and Oklahoma Regional Food Bank. This year, American Fidelity launched the AF Teacher Fellowship as a way to help teachers prepare students for the business and tech world while earning a little extra money during the summer.
“In turbulent times, the Best Workplaces for Giving Back are stepping up to lead,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like American Fidelity provide important hands-on leadership and material support to help communities thrive.”
These leading workplaces go above and beyond to develop endeavors in giving back that ensure all team members feel they’re making a difference in the world. As a result, people at winning workplaces report more pride in their employers and feeling deeper meaning in their day-to-day work.
The Best Workplaces for Giving Back is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, and FORTUNE based on employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work–Certified™ organizations.
Great Place to Work evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.
