Amanda Gordy knew that Aflac was involved in helping the childhood cancer community, but it was not until her own daughter, Tynsley, was diagnosed with leukemia that she realized just how much. Today, Tynsley is out of treatment and Amanda is devoted to helping other families facing similar battles.
“It’s great to be a part of a community that just cares so much about philanthropy,” Amanda says.
When it comes to laws and regulations, Aflac employee and CSR Hero Sherricka Day knows her stuff. She is part of the Regulatory Compliance department, which helps ensure the company is compliant with state laws and regulations. Although her job can be tedious, Sherrika finds balance in the friendly, warm environment that Aflac cultivates.
“I think it’s very important for a company to show their appreciation and to invest in their employees. When you do that, then your employees will, in turn, do whatever it is that you need them to do to further your mission.”
For Aflac employee and CSR Hero Tarisha Fields, living a sustainable lifestyle is a priority at home and at work. She practices green initiatives with her family, community and at work as part of Aflac’s Green Committee.
“Aflac is a company of caring. We care about the people, we care about the environment, which also motivates me to care about the environment and the people that we serve.”
For Diane Hintz, 2018 Aflac #CSRHero and an independent agent licensed to sell Aflac products, making a positive impact in her community is a year-round job. Inspired by her mother – a breast cancer survivor – Diane is committed to making a difference in her community wherever she can.
