Forbes Names Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama One of America’s Best Mid-Size Employers
May 6, 2019
In a recent announcement, Forbes named Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama one of America’s 2019 Best Mid-Size Employers.
The recognition came after Forbes randomly surveyed 50,000 employees in 25 different industries who work for companies with 1,000 or more employees.
“We are truly honored to be recognized as one of America’s best mid-size employers,” said Tim Vines, president and CEO of Alabama’s Blue Cross Blue Shield. “Our employees are our most valuable asset. We are committed to providing a positive and rewarding work environment for the more than 3,000 employees who work every day to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
The evaluation of each employer was based on two criteria:
- Direct Recommendations: Employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employer to friends and family based on a 0-10 scale.
- Indirect recommendations: Participants were also prompted to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
The latest announcement marks the second consecutive year Blue Cross has been named Best Employer in the mid-size category.
In addition to being one of the best mid-size employers, Blue Cross was also recognized this year as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity.
