American Fidelity is dedicated to the health and wellness of our Colleagues and that’s why we offer opportunities for them to get up and move. Just last week the AF Wellness Team put on a wellness carnival, Spring into Wellness. More than 200 Colleagues joined us on our outdoor property at 9K for a quick, fun, healthy break in the afternoon. Colleagues participated in a scavenger hunt where they took a walk around our walking trail and played ping pong, musical chairs, basketball and catch. Some Colleagues took the relaxing route and painted a spring picture while sitting on the patio. Healthy snacks were also offered for Colleagues. Check out some pictures from the event.

ISD Colleagues celebrating a great year!
After a new year gets in full swing, American Fidelity takes time to celebrate our success from the prior year and thank our Colleagues for their hard work and dedication.
Just yesterday many of our teams started celebrating and others have plans in the coming weeks.
Our Life division Colleagues celebrated at Main Event with lunch and bowling and the Enterprise Business Services team will be venturing there in April for lunch, bowling, laser tag and more.
Our friends in IT took time out yesterday morning as one big team for breakfast and other treats.
The Financial Management Services team also enjoyed a come-and-go breakfast on their floor.
The Corporate and Human Resources teams are taking time out for lunch next week and Colleagues at our sister company, APL celebrated success with food, photo booths and goodie bags.
Colleagues in our Worksite division celebrated in the late afternoon with a Star Wars themed get together. They were encouraged to wear costumes, had snacks, music and more.
These are just a few ways American Fidelity celebrated 2015 success with our Colleagues. Would you like to join our team? Check out our OKC job openings and our field sales positions and learn about our hiring process.
It’s not enough to just be a great place to work; our Colleagues also want to ensure our community is a great place to live!
As a result, American Fidelity Colleagues are among the leaders in the community in supporting the arts in the Oklahoma City area. Each spring, we come together to support Allied Arts, which reaches more than 1 million residents in our community and directly impacts the lives of our children, the growth of our economy and the health of our communities.
As a leader in our community, American Fidelity is one of the largest contributors to the Allied Arts annual fundraising campaign. We are also one of the trailblazers in establishing worksite-based campaigns for the Allied Arts member agencies and have been recognized as one of the best models to follow when new organizations want to join the campaign.
The annual campaign provides a way for Colleagues to support Allied Arts through payroll deductions as well as raise funds in other ways. We’ve hosted painting parties, penny wars, fundraising challenges and more. Executives offer to take a cream pie in the face, all to raise money for Allied Arts.
In the coming weeks, Colleagues will have the opportunity to learn more about Allied Arts member agencies during an open house in which agencies will send representatives to American Fidelity to talk about their work. Let us know how you support the arts in your community!

“Working for American Fidelity has made me a better person by allowing me to gain financial stability, pursue my degree at work and awaken the community action and volunteerism within me. I got married, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, went through chemo treatment and had a baby while employed at American Fidelity. With the necessary time off, cancer insurance, disability plan and the love of my Colleagues ... I was covered. I want to provide the same great Customer service to others as I received.”

Today we roll out our new brand, American Fidelity, a different opinion. The new American Fidelity brand sets us apart from the competition and enable us to better serve our unique Customers.
The new brand theme, “a different opinion,” positions AF as being different from competitors and the one Customers should always consider when purchasing supplemental benefits.
Our new logo symbolizes this different opinion by raising up a different red bar in contrast to the others which are all the same.The red also happens to be the same color as the Company name, implying that American Fidelity is the different opinion.
With the new brand we understand that our Customers are unique and they deserve a specialist. Our Colleagues have been preparing for this change through brand training, where they have be given detailed research and insight into the brand, the logo and our focus.
Our Customers deserve a specialist. You deserve an Employer of Choice. This is our new recruiting tagline that follows suit with our new brand. We believe our Colleagues are our greatest asset and making sure they work in an environment that is positive helps them provide the best Customer service they can!
