    Occupying slot number 132 on the Fortune 500 list, Aflac spreads its wings far and wide as one of the nation’s largest insurers. But that doesn’t keep the company from feeling intimate. In addition to a “spot awards” program that recognizes outstanding employee achievements with instant cash, company stock and swag, the company holds a weeklong celebration for its staff every year. The event has included ice skating, mini-golfing, family outings, and more. That’s not all—those who volunteer at or help plan the affair also get invited to a party at CEO Dan Amos’ country farm. As one worker gushes, “We are made to feel special and appreciated.” Read the Great Place to Work review.
