“We work hard to be a Great Place to Work for All, and the survey and feedback that is part of the award process helps us understand what works well with our Colleagues and where improvements can made,” said American Fidelity president and COO Jeanette Rice. “We are determined to continue making positive changes and are currently working on a diversity and inclusion strategy to help us build on our success and ensure our training, recruiting and mentoring processes are more inclusive.”
Currently women make up about 60% of the Company’s Colleagues, 52% of Company officers and half of the executive team. A few of these positions include: AF president, chief strategy officer, chief administrative officer, senior vice president of operations, senior vice president of corporate and human resources and chief information officer.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work® analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.9 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.
