Colleague Appreciation Week Taco LineTaco Tuesday Line

During one week each year, American Fidelity takes time out to shower appreciation on our Colleagues. While we appreciate their contributions every week of the year, Colleague Appreciation Week is celebrated to ensure our Colleagues know we understand their contributions to the success of serving our Customers every day. 

The week kicked off with Munchies Monday and a packet of snack crackers delivered to every Colleague. We celebrated Taco Tuesday with free lunch from the Waterfront Grill.Taco!Colleagues registered to win prizes on Wednesday by showing off their oldest (or favorite) AF attire. We got some great photos from the 1980s that took us down memory lane! 

We celebrated our Company’s 56th birthday on Thursday and also took time to give back to the community for Thankful Thursday. Colleagues were treated to cupcakes and entered to win one of 56 prizes. They also brought donations for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and our 2017 Charity Day schedule was announced.

The week culminated on Fun Friday with Fun Dip delivered to each break room. 

Our full-time work from home and remote Colleagues weren’t forgotten; they each were mailed a box including items from the week and were eligible for all the prizes that were distributed. 

We know that Colleagues who feel appreciated work harder for our Customers. If you want to work for a company that appreciates its Colleagues, check our openings today!

This week I had the privilege of helping to recognize about two dozen of our Colleagues who have been recognized by their peers for providing excellent Customer service. The whole Company celebrated Customer Service Week, and these Colleagues represent the best of the best.

 

We invited the top achievers to lunch with Company President Dave Carpenter, and he thanked the group for their efforts on behalf of American Fidelity. Dave encouraged the Colleagues to continue their dedication to service.

 

The celebration also marked the end of the first year of our revamped Colleague recognition program: High 5!

 

Colleagues can nominate each other for a kudo if they appreciate a one-time action, or they can nominate fellow Colleagues for a 5 AF Recognition for consistently demonstrating our core values and living our brand. Since its debut, more than 800 nominations have been received to recognize 425 individual Colleagues.

 

This week, we honored the Colleagues who received the most acclaim during the past year. Lorrie Gates and Ginger Rice were the Gold Star achievers, and each received more than 10 nominations.

 

We also saluted Silver Star achievers, and presented honorable mention awards to Colleagues representing departments throughout the Company.

 

What types of recognition do you receive, and what types of recognition are most meaningful to you?

 

Homecoming: April-ciation at American Fidelity

April 29, 2015 03:45 AM
IMG_1040 “April-ciation,” the month-long celebration of our hard-working AFA Colleagues, is coming to a close. Each week for the entire month of April, American Fidelity has hosted a themed day of fun and excitement for our Colleagues. One day we were treated to breakfast by our execs and on another we got to enjoy some fun games and inflatable obstacle courses outside during lunch. It’s been an awesome month, but this week’s event was my absolute favorite! Yesterday, all AFA Colleagues were treated to a free meal from some of OKC’s finest food trucks. Taste of Soul Eggroll, Pops, Smokin’ Okies, Chick N Wangs, Parking Lot Party, Klemm’s Smoke Haus and Odie May’s set up shop at both of our Home Offices and dished out their delicious delicacies to many a hungry AFA Colleague.

From free health screenings to education and training initiatives, American Fidelity makes a point to support our Colleagues in every way possible. I’m personally looking forward to the next round of fun-filled activities. Want to join in on the fun? Make sure to check our career page for job openings and apply. We want you to be a member of our team!

It’s April-ciation at AFA!

April-ciation-2015-Logo Spring is in the air, the trees are in bloom and the weather is getting warmer, which means it must be April here in Oklahoma City. It also means that “April-ciation”, the month long celebration of our hard-working AFA Colleagues, is finally kicking off at American Fidelity! It’s no secret how much we love our Colleagues, and to prove it, AFA has planned a month’s worth of weekly activities, contests, giveaways and other celebrations for our Colleagues. We begin this week with breakfast served to us by members of our executive team. Next week we get to show our team spirit by wearing our favorite sports-team gear. Prizes will be handed out to the biggest super-fans. One day this month we’ll play games like air-hockey, ping-pong and foosball . There’s even rumors floating around that a giant inflatable obstacle course will be awaiting Colleagues outside! There’s more great fun for Colleagues to look forward to during "April-ciation". I’m personally looking forward to the free food-truck day. During "April-ciation", our Colleagues can submit videos that show off their AFA team spirit. The videos will be posted on our internal website and voted upon by other Colleagues. The videos with the most votes win a pretty cool prize. It’s certainly nice to feel appreciated, or should I say “April-ciated”? Want to join in on the fun? Make sure to check our career page for job openings and apply. We want you to be a member of our amazing team!

What’s Happening at AFA I Colleague of the Month

June 24, 2013 02:33 AM

DSC_0768 If you’ve followed our blog, you know that American Fidelity appreciates Colleagues.. We are shown how much we are valued through small gestures from our managers and teams to large events for the entire Company. One of the great recognition programs we have is the Colleague of the Month (COM) Award. Anyone can nominate a Colleague who has shown they go above and beyond providing great Customer service and living our values by filling out a simple online form. Each month the members of the Colleague of the Month team review the nominations and cast their votes. They tally the votes and choose a winner. It’s not just the award that makes it so great. The team contacts the winner’s manager and sets up a time for a small, surprise presentation. The COM team and the winner’s team get together for a “meeting” and the surprise announcement is made. Comments from the nominations are shared and the Colleague of the Month is presented with a bag full of goodies to share with their team, a $25 gift certificate to the AF Company Store; choice of move tickets, on-site massage or car wash; a desk award and a $200 gift card! At the end of each year, all of the COM winners are considered for the Colleague of the Year award. A presentation is set for this award and everyone in the Company is invited – the president of our Company is even there to present the award. This is a great way to recognize our Colleagues for their hard work serving our Customers. How do you show appreciation for other’s hard work? Let us know in the comments.
