June 27, 2022

June 27, 2022 (Birmingham, Ala.) – Protective Life Corporation (Protective), a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of Dai-ichi Life Holdings, Inc. (TSE:8750), is proud to announce that it’s achieved a workplace culture certification by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation. The certification is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Protective. This year, 89% of its survey respondents stated that Protective is a great place to work, compared to the average U.S. company score of 57%.

“Receiving the Great Place to Work designation reflects the positive impact of living our shared values and affirms our core belief that, together, we create possibilities for our teammates, customers and communities,” said Protective’s EVP and Chief Human Resources Officer Wendy Evesque. “We celebrate and support every individual’s way of being a protector and realize everyone’s perspective and experience helps us grow stronger as a company. Employee experience and engagement is a core part of Protective’s business goals and objectives, so it is extremely gratifying to see our efforts aligned with these results.”

Protective offers competitive benefits that support work-life balance, including paid parental leave, adoption assistance, leadership development opportunities, flexible work arrangements, tuition reimbursement, a 401(k) with an employer match and pension plan funded by the company, among others. Protective also remains committed to being a sustainable company, as evidenced by its 115-year history. Through its focus on key topics like education, health and food security, the company supports the welfare and quality of life of local communities while providing employees an opportunity to make an impact in their careers and in the world.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Great Place to Work’s Vice President of Global Recognition Sarah Lewis-Kulin. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Protective is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
