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.

“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.”

EBS Imaging Colleagues[/caption] At American Fidelity we take pride in serving our Customers each and every day. All last week we celebrated Customer Service Week. As a Company we kicked off a new Colleague recognition program called High 5 and everyone had opportunities to win prizes, while many areas of the Company had their own celebrations With the new recognition program, Colleagues have the opportunity to nominate anyone in the Company to receive a Kudos or a High 5 token that goes on their High 5 game board. Tokens are worth points, and once a Colleague receives so many points, they can be cashed in for different recognition offers. Different areas of the Company celebrated with things like pizza lunches, goody bags, free movie tickets or massage gift certificates, cupcakes and cookies and more. We appreciate all of the hard work our Colleagues put in each day and we thank them for their dedication to our Customers. Great work AF Colleagues! Are you interested in joining our team?
