Birmingham, Ala. – Protective Life Corporation (“Protective”), a U.S. subsidiary of Dai-ichi Life Holdings, Inc. (TSE:8750), has been named to Forbes’ list of America’s Best Midsize Employers for 2024.

The annual list recognizes companies with workplace cultures that contribute to their employees’ happiness and engagement. For 2024, Protective ranked among the best employers in the midsize category of businesses considered, which includes companies with 1,000 to 5,000 employees.

“At Protective, we strive to build a workplace where everyone can thrive and a culture our employees are proud of,” said Wendy Evesque, EVP, Chief Human Resource Officer for Protective. “We are excited to receive this recognition, which is a strong reflection of how our Protectors take care of each other, our communities and our customers. The efforts they put forth each day make Protective the great company it is.”

America’s Best Employers are identified through an independent survey from a vast sample of over 170,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S. The final score is based on personal evaluations from surveyed employees as well as indirect evaluations given by friends and family of employees or people who work in the same industry.
