Most Admired Companies, Aflac, the number one provider of supplemental insurance in the United States, serving more than 466,000 businesses across the country, has been ranked a World’s Most Admired Company by FORTUNE magazine for the 11th time. The voluntary insurance giant finished No. 1 in the Social Responsibility and Innovation categories for the life & health insurance industry and No. 2 overall for the category. Aflac joins eight other companies based in Georgia on the 2012 list. According to FORTUNE, the Most Admired list is the definitive report card on corporate reputations.
“It is a tremendous honor for Aflac, our employees and our 191,000 independent field associates in the U.S. and Japan to be recognized as a FORTUNE’s World’s Most Admired Company for the 11th time,” Aflac Chairman and CEO Dan Amos said. “As a company whose culture is based on our long held commitment to doing the right thing for customers, shareholders and stakeholders, we are particularly proud to lead the industry for social responsibility and innovation.”
To compile the list of Most Admired Companies, FORTUNE started with approximately 1,400 companies: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue; non-U.S. companies in FORTUNE’s Global 500 database with revenue of $10 billion or more; and the top foreign companies operating in the U.S. Extracted from that list were a total of 698 companies from 32 countries, which wereanlyzed on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility.
The World’s Most Admired Companies survey is conducted by the Hay Group, a global management consulting firm. The 2012 list currently appears online at FORTUNE.com. Companies finishing within the top half of their industry will appear in the print edition of FORTUNE magazine on March 19, 2012.
