Employees still overwhelmed when making health care decisions but willing to devote more time to the open enrollment process.
COLUMBUS, Ga., Sept. 24, 2020 /3BL Media/ -- The annual open enrollment season is nearly underway, and U.S. employees will be making benefits decisions during an unprecedented and challenging time. To understand employees' and employers' feelings about this critical event, Aflac, a leading provider of supplemental insurance and products in the U.S., conducted a national online survey of 1,200 benefits decision-makers and 2,000 employees across the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic.
There’s no question that many businesses are ready to make giving a bigger part of their operations than ever. A recent study from Aflac found that although “56% of business executives claim moderate to significant negative company revenue impact due to the COVID-19 epidemic, 74% are willing to significantly or moderately increase corporate giving going forward.”
COLUMBUS, Ga. /3BL Media/ -- September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and Aflac, a leading provider of supplemental insurance and products in the U.S., is set to commemorate the month, including honoring the health care heroes who care for, educate and support childhood cancer patients and their families.
NEW YORK /3BL Media/ – Aflac Incorporated, a leader in supplemental insurance at U.S. worksites, has partnered with the New York State Association of Health Care Providers (NYSHCP) and the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI) to provide face shields to downstate home- and community-based care agencies that continue to deal with hot spots of COVID-19 cases. Courtesy of a $2 million donation by Aflac, home care agencies in New York City and Long Island are receiving face shields as part of a national pandemic response.
In this week's episode of On Brand, we speak with Shannon Watkins, SVP of brand and the Aflac Studio (IHA) at Aflac. Shannon tells us how the company has been pivoting during Covid to focus on people's needs, rather than on its traditional humor, and how Aflac had been evolving the role of its iconic duck mascot well before the pandemic hit. She also discusses WFH, her company's longtime commitment to diversity, and working in the creative hotbed of Atlanta.
For 65 years, Aflac has had the extraordinary opportunity and privilege to help provide peace of mind to individuals who have our supplemental insurance policies. Though many things have changed over the decades, one thing has not: Aflac is committed to being there when people need us most.
