Named to List for 14 Consecutive Years — Only Insurance Company Recognized Every Year Since 2007
COLUMBUS, Ga., Feb. 25, 2020 /3BL Media/ — Aflac Incorporated today announced that it is once again included on the Ethisphere Institute’s list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies® for 2020. This marks the 14th consecutive year that the company has appeared on the prestigious list, making Aflac the only insurer to appear on the list every year since the inaugural recognition in 2007.
Aflac put its duck mascot to work as a companion robot for kids with cancer—and animated the company’s brand purpose along the way.
The Aflac Duck has been squawking, waddling, and shaking its feathers loose in commercials for years, making a household name for itself and for the Aflac brand. Meanwhile, the supplemental insurance provider has been quietly donating millions of dollars to support kids with cancer and fund pediatric cancer research.
Atlanta native Shannon Watkins, senior vice president of brand and creative services at Aflac, said that the city’s diversity and its stance as a sort of an outsider to traditional Madison Avenue advertising drive more creativity.
The duck has even gone high tech to help sick kids. Amos said that the company has already raised more than $145 million for pediatric cancer charities since the start of the ad campaign from the sale of stuffed plush Aflac ducks..
And it now has an interactive robot version of the toy duck that gets donated to children diagnosed with cancer. It's won best in show awards at both the influential Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas as well as at South by Southwest.
