For the second year in a row, AFLAC has been named to Computerworld magazine's annual listing of the "100 Best Places to Work in IT."

The Computerworld listing is based on a survey sent to U.S.-based companies with revenue of $500 million or more and a minimum information technology staff of 15 employees. The 46-question online survey gathers information about organizations' benefits, training and development; average salary increases; percentage of staff promoted; turnover rates; and the percentage of women and minority employees in IT management positions. In addition, information is collected on each organization's projects, mentoring programs and a variety of benefits, ranging from child care to stock options.

In response to AFLAC's ranking, AFLAC President and CEO Dan Amos said: "It is an honor to be included in Computerworld's listing of '100 Best Places to Work in IT.' Investment in technology has been a driving force in our success. It has made AFLAC more efficient and allowed us to provide better service to our policyholders and sales associates, and resulted in increased value for our shareholders."
