For the 12th year in a row, Columbus-based Aflac has made Fortune magazine’s annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. The supplemental insurance company came in at No. 37.
Dan Amos, Aflac chairman and chief executive officer, said he was proud the company had been named to the list.
“It once again validates our company’s long-held belief that if you treat your employees well, they will take care of the business,” he said in a statement.
For this year’s list, hiring efforts and the ways companies were helping employees weather the recession carried much weight. Of the 100 companies on the list, 65 are currently hiring.
With the help of the Great Place to Work Institute, Fortune chooses the top 100 based on company and employee surveys.
SAS, a Cary, NC-based provider of software and services for business analytics, took the No. 1 spot this year, followed by investment firm Edward Jones and Wegmans Food Markets, at No. 2 and 3, respectively.
