Monday, April 12, 2021

American Fidelity is one of the 2021 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For, as selected by Great Place to Work and Fortune. This is American Fidelity’s 15th appearance on the list, coming in at No. 53 in 2021.

The Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than half a million current employees across the U.S. In that survey, 95% of American Fidelity’s Colleagues said American Fidelity is a great place to work, compared to 59% at the average U.S.-based company.

Here are just a few of things American Fidelity Colleagues had to say:

“AF is genuine in how it portrays itself. The people in this Company really care about our experience here and our well-being, and that is rare in this world.” – Zi Williams, benefits adjuster

“AF encourages us to focus on innovation while driving home a Customer-centric environment.” – Shannon Steadman, enrollment systems coordinator

“I love how the Company supports charitable giving!” – Mindy Fuzzell, accounting analyst

“AF shows flexibility for both our Customers and Colleagues!” – Tony Fournier, project manager

“My favorite things about work are the people I work with and the Company culture.” – Vicki Hill, technical analyst

“I’m thankful for being able to continue to work safely during the pandemic.” – Hala Makhoul, business analysis supervisor

To determine the 2021 list, Great Place to Work® surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact. Particular attention was paid to how employees’ experiences varied depending on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status and other characteristics to ensure that the company is creating a great workplace for all.

“Congratulations to the 100 Best Companies to Work For. These companies stood out for heroic efforts to care for their employees, their customers and our society, in a difficult year,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Remarkably, our research found that employee experience scores rose at these workplaces overall last year – a testament to the resilience of their inclusive, high-trust cultures.”

This year, 60% of each company’s score is based on confidential employee feedback. The remaining 40% is based on the programs each company said they created to support their people and communities in response to the pandemic. This methodology represents a change in response to the unique circumstances of 2020.
