If you’ve been following us at Inside AFA, you know American Fidelity does a lot to be an Employer of Choice for Colleagues. We know Colleagues spend a lot of time working really hard to serve our Customers, so we want to provide ways for them to have fun outside the office, too! What better way to do this than to offer things that cater to our Colleagues’ interests? Special interest groups for our Colleagues are now being organized and range from meeting once a week over lunch to discuss a book to groups gathering to plan an evening or weekend get together. To start the process, we surveyed our Colleagues to find out what kind of groups they would be interested in and one of the most voted for activities was a group painting event. So, we are making it happen! This week we are helping Colleagues get signed up for a Wine and Palette night in September. We have organized the event and provided the information, and now it’s time for Colleagues to go out and sign up for one of the 75 open spots! I can’t wait to see how many Colleagues get together for a little social painting. Some other groups we may have in the future are book clubs, cooking groups, gardening clubs, biking/running groups – the sky’s the limit! What types of interest groups are you involved in, or would you like to be involved in? Let us know in the comments!
