American Fidelity Named to 2017 Workforce 100

June 5, 2017

American Fidelity was announced as an honoree of the 2017 Workforce 100 presented by Workforce magazine, a Human Capital Media publication. Workforce 100 designates companies as the best in HR management through statistical analysis conducted by Human Capital Media Advisory Group.

“One of our division’s goals is to create an employer of choice environment to engage Colleagues to maximize performance and our HR programs are an integral part of that goal,” said Thayla Bohn, VP of Corporate and Human Resources at American Fidelity. “American Fidelity is in many ways an extension of our Customers’ HR departments and it’s vital that we provide our Colleagues with top of the line HR services so that we can in turn serve our Customers.”

The Workforce 100 chart indicates the rank order and scores of the 100 companies that performed best in seven core areas: workplace culture; employee benefits; diversity and inclusion; employee development/talent management; HR innovation/management; leadership development; recruiting and talent acquisition. The working assumption is that high performance in these categories would provide a reasonable proxy for overall HR excellence.

To find out which companies are the best for HR management, Workforce editors, along with researchers from the Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the magazine’s research arm, created a statistical formula to sift through publicly available information to separate the best from the rest. The result of that analysis is the Workforce 100 list.

“We’re pleased this awards program continues to grow in popularity, but also in its ability to report organizations’ performance with greater accuracy,” said Rick Bell, Workforce magazine’s editorial director. “Our rankings are compiled with tangible data backed by extensive research, and it continues to prove valuable in setting industry benchmarks.”

Workforce 100 honorees will be profiled in the July/August issue of Workforce magazine.
