COLUMBUS, Ga., March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac Incorporated has been named to the Top 50 Corporations for supplier diversity list by Hispanic Enterprise magazine. The February/March issue highlights a complete list of companies receiving this honor.

"We understand the importance of a diverse supplier base and are committed to the economic prosperity in multi-cultural communities," said Alfred Blackmar, vice president of Facilities Support at Aflac. "Our mission is to continue to develop processes and procedures that provide easy, efficient and accountable access for certified minority-owned businesses."

Over the past few years, Aflac has significantly increased spending on its supplier diversity program to include advances in educational training for minority vendors. Since the inception of the program in 2003, Aflac has surpassed the $100 million mark in spending with minority- and women-owned companies.

Hispanic Enterprise magazine evaluated each company's procurement opportunities to minority-owned businesses including tools and resources allocated to improve supplier-customer relationship and development of comprehensive supplier programs through mentorship, training, networking meetings and other incentives.

Latina Style magazine recently named Aflac as one of the 50 Best Companies for Latinas to work for in the United States for the eighth year in a row.
