Forbes named Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama one of America's 2019 Best Employers for Diversity. Only 500 companies earned this distinction, and Blue Cross scored in the top third. Blue Cross was also one of only two companies in Alabama to earn this recognition.
"We are honored to be recognized," said Tim Vines, CEO of BCBS of Alabama.
Recognition was based on Forbes randomly surveying 50,000 employees of companies with 1,000 or more employees, and 100-129 respondents were surveyed about Blue Cross.
The evaluation was based on four criteria:
- Direct Recommendations from Employees
- Indirect Recommendations from Participants of Other Employers
- Diversity among Top Executives/Board Members
- Diversity Key Performance Indicators
This is the second consecutive year Blue Cross has been recognized by Forbes.
