Date:6/17/2009

Insurer climbs five spots on Computerworld's annual listing of top companies for IT professionals

COLUMBUS, Ga., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac today announced that IDG's Computerworld, the voice of IT management, has again selected the company as one of the top workplaces for information technology professionals. This insurer ranked No. 29 on this year's list, up five places from last year, and has appeared on the list 10 times. This honor is part of the weekly publication's 16th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey and is published in the June 15 issue of Computerworld and online at Computerworld.com.

"Aflac is extremely proud to be repeatedly recognized as an employer of choice for IT professionals," said Gerald Shields, Aflac senior vice president and chief information officer. "We thank Computerworld for this honor and are especially grateful to Aflac's team of professionals, who consistently strive for excellence and innovation. They create a winning formula that provides quality service to our customers and support for our sales force."

In ranking Aflac in the upper tier of its coveted list, Computerworld cited the amount of time invested in training and the large number of women and minorities within the company's IT ranks.

Since 1994, Computerworld's annual Best Places to Work in IT feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, based on a comprehensive questionnaire about company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, this year Computerworld surveyed more than 27,000 IT workers for the list, and their responses factored heavily in determining the rankings.

For more than 50 years, Aflac products have given policyholders the opportunity to direct cash where it is needed most when a life-interrupting medical event causes financial challenges. As the number one provider of guaranteed-renewable insurance in the United States and the number one insurance company in terms of individual insurance policies in force in Japan, Aflac insurance products provide protection to more than 40 million people worldwide. In 2009, Aflac was recognized by Ethisphere magazine as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies for the third consecutive year and was also named by the Reputation Institute as the Most Reputable Company in the Global Insurance Industry for the second consecutive year. In 2009 Fortune magazine recognized Aflac as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in America for the eleventh consecutive year. Fortune magazine also ranked Aflac No. 1 on its global list of the Most Admired Companies in the Life and Health Insurance category.
