George Floyd’s death a year ago filled the streets with protesters, prompted new legislation and caused a nation to think about uncomfortable things. But it also thrust major corporations into the spotlight of societal examination, driving even the most reluctant business brands from the precarious perch of “observer” to an inescapable role of “initiator.”
Dan Amos, Aflac Incorporated CEO and Chairman: “I think it symbolizes all the things we are and want to continue to be, and that is to help kids and to try to make a difference in their lives.”
Jon Sullivan, Director of Corporate Communications: “Well you know, children are like consumers in a way in that when you give them something that they like, they want to see it advance year in and year out. So, we are constantly adding things to the program.”
James Mailman, Field Liaison Manager: “Well, a lot of people go to work for a paycheck. That’s it. They don’t care about anything else. Aflac cares about everything else. When I first got out of the Navy, I came here, and I applied to several different places. And I was hoping to get on at Aflac for the simple reason that they take care of people. When I found out their philanthropic deal with the Cancer Center, I just thought that was amazing. They support the Beads of Courage. They've purchased a little NASCAR for the kids.
Fred Crawford, Aflac Incorporated President and Chief Operating Officer: “The number one reason Environmental Social Governance (ESG) is important to us is, it’s extremely consistent with the corporate culture we have at Aflac in driving a company's growth and profitability, balanced with an eye toward doing right by our employees, doing right by our policyholders and, of course, proper governance and doing right by our investors.
Digital Insurance: Tell us a little bit about your career at Aflac. Jamie Lee: My career spans so many different areas in the company. I’m born and raised here in Columbus, Georgia, starting, literally answering phones in our call center. I spent time on the sell side for a number of years and then asked to lead many of our transformation type projects. That was all before I took the chief service officer role.
