Date:7/1/2008

Notable workforce diversity lands the insurer on the annual listing for the

fourth consecutive year

COLUMBUS, Ga., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Black Enterprise magazine applauded Aflac's outstanding achievements in workplace diversity for the fourth consecutive year on the 40 Best Companies for Diversity listing. This recognition highlights the well-branded insurer's remarkable minority representation in senior management and overall employee base.

"It is an honor to be recognized as one of the top companies for diversity. This recognition is a testament to our workforce's commitment to respecting and valuing not only diverse cultures but varying perspectives and viewpoints as well," stated Dan Amos, Aflac's chairman and CEO.

The publication gathered and compiled diversity information on more than 1,000 of the nation's publicly traded companies and 50 leading global companies with a large presence in the United States. Then they evaluated and performed quantitative assessments of all corporate respondents in each survey category of workforce, management, advertising, and board and vendor diversity. From these findings, the top 40 companies were chosen.

"This is the fourth consecutive year that AFLAC has been ranked among our top companies for diversity," said BLACK ENTERPRISE Editorial Director Sonia Alleyne. "They have consistently demonstrated their commitment to a diverse workforce and understand the importance of developing and promoting minorities as a business imperative. We congratulate them on continuing to be among our best."

Aflac champions diversity through its employee makeup and supplier diversity outreach. Currently, the insurer's workforce is comprised of 41 percent minorities with 66 percent women rounding out the company's multicultural landscape. In 2007, minorities accounted for more than 38 percent of new hires and nearly 50 percent of management positions are held by minorities.
