MEMPHIS, Tenn., Sept. 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Horizon National Corp. (NYSE:FHN), consistently recognized as one of the country's best places to work, has received three more employer of choice awards. AARP recognized First Horizon in the top five on its list of the nation's top 50 employers for workers over 50. For the 17th consecutive year First Horizon earned a spot on Working Mother magazine's list of the 100 Best Companies for working mothers.

Companies were selected for the 2011 Working Mother 100 Best Companies based on usage, availability, tracking and management accountability for programs targeting working parents including benefits, women's issues and advancement, child care, flexible work, parental leave and company culture. 

Rankings for the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces List were based on benefits available to employees who adopt, such as financial reimbursement and paid leave.
