For the fifth year in a row, Aflac Inc. has made Black Enterprise magazine's list of the 40 best companies for diversity.
"Our commitment to diversity has created an environment where wide-ranging ideas have helped our company grow," Dan Amos, Aflac chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement. "We embrace the good fortune of a diverse workforce and are proud of this recognition by Black Enterprise magazine."
Minority workers make up 40 percent of Aflac's workforce. Women comprise almost 70 percent of its total employee base and more than half of its management team.
Black Enterprise's top 40 companies for diversity were chosen for outperforming peers in one or more of four categories: board representation, employee base, senior management and supplier diversity.
In Georgia, two other companies besides Aflac made the list: UPS Inc. and The Coca-Cola Co.
The full report will appear in the magazine's July issue, which hits newsstands June 30.
