Week 17 founders week
Week 17 we honor our founders. Bill, John, and Paul Amos had a dream; a dream to offer families the opportunity to protect themselves against the financial uncertainty that comes when things go wrong. Their legacy lives on. Aflac began with 60 employees in a small office building in Columbus, Georgia, in 1955. Today, almost 10,000 people on two continents come to work at Aflac every day. Thanks to you, nearly 50 million people worldwide count on the Aflac promise. A lot has changed since 1955, but through the years one thing has remained the same: the principles of honesty and integrity that guided our founders over 55 years ago are still honored today. Principal founder John Amos joined with his Paul and Bill to found Aflac. They believed in hard work and the entrepreneurial spirit. During Founders Week, we celebrate that spirit and honor you, the men and women who keep that spirit alive. Week 17 is a chance to celebrate and be a part of Aflac history. As you are out in the field this week, think of John, Paul and Bill, and know that you are a part of a legacy!
