“We strive to be a Great Place to Work for All, and awards like this help us measure our success,” said American Fidelity president and COO Jeanette Rice. “We want to create a welcoming, positive environment for all of our Colleagues regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, age or disabilities.”
Currently women make up about 60% of the Company’s Colleagues, 52% of Company officers and about half of top executive team. A few of these positions include: AF president, chief strategy officer, financial controller, chief administrative officer, senior vice president of operations, senior vice president of corporate and human resources, chief information officer and chief technology officer.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work® analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.6 million US employees.
The majority of the ranking is based on what women themselves report in a 60-question Trust Index© survey about their workplace, and how fairly those experiences compare to men’s reports of the same workplaces. The survey measures the extent to which women report their organizations create a Great Place to Work For All™. Fifteen percent of the remaining rank is based on how well represented women are in the workforce and throughout management, taking into account industry trends.
“These winning companies are thriving because women have an equal seat at every table where critical decisions are made,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like American Fidelity know that creating a great workplace where everyone can succeed regardless of gender is not just the right thing to do, but a must-do if you want to be the very best of everything in the marketplace.”
