Date:2/5/2008

Aflac's eighth consecutive appearance on Training Magazine's list ranks 33

COLUMBUS, Ga., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- For the eighth consecutive year, highly developed education and leadership programs helped Aflac leap to Number 33 among the best corporations providing career development for employees according to Training Magazine's annual Top 125 listing. During an exclusive ceremony in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center, the insurer was honored for its professional and personal development courses, shooting up 13 spots from last year.

"We take tremendous pride in being designated as one of the best in providing quality career-enhancement courses to our employees," said Audrey Tillman, executive vice president, director of Corporate Services. "As we continue to develop our corporate training offerings, it is validating to see our workforce build their careers using the resources and knowledge we help them to obtain."

To compile the listing, applying businesses completed a two-part survey that highlighted professional skills, executive coaching, leadership development, employee orientation, sales training and diversity programs.

Several of the company's training initiatives were lauded, including the Aflac Leadership Academy, a curriculum designed especially for company management that provides offsite training, discussion and activities all geared toward promoting action-learning of core competencies. The Health Insurance Program, an accredited program for high school students to gain knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in an insurance organization, was also recognized.

In addition to professional development training, Aflac provides personal development sessions referred to as Lunch and Learn courses. Topics addressed include tips on budgeting and saving as well as classes for first-time home buyers. The company also offers a variety of tuition-assistance programs for first-time degree seekers and graduate students, and renewable college scholarships for children and grandchildren of employees.

Training Magazine's complete listing will be available in a special section of the March issue.

Other recent recognitions Aflac has received include being named for the tenth consecutive time to FORTUNE magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For in America and making the Latina Style magazine's 50 Best Companies for Hispanic Women to Work list.
