Technology changes daily and is integral to serving Customers and Colleagues at American Fidelity, which makes our Information Services Division (ISD) key to our success. We’re always searching for Colleagues to join our team to help develop innovative tools to improve our Customers’ experience and support our technology infrastructure, so I talked to Diana Bittle, AFA’s VP of software solutions, to get her thoughts on working in IT at AFA. “AFA encourages Colleagues to identify new ways to better serve our Customers,” said Diana. “Several teams of Colleagues in my software group are participating in the Innovation Challenge, an internal competition to improve the efficiency of a current project by thinking creatively. These Colleagues are having fun and helping the Company in the process.” AFA IT Colleagues regularly participate in internal mentoring programs not only to learn about the business, but also to develop ideas to improve speed of delivery and overall efficiency. “Our IT Colleagues are innovative professionals,” added Diana. “To channel this creativity, we are launching a research and development team on which Colleagues can serve on a rotating basis.” Our Colleagues get the best of both worlds – a challenging, collaborative work environment and the time for a life outside of work, which is made possible, in part, by options for telecommuting and working a flexible schedule.
