Forbes: Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama among America’s best midsize employers

Forbes has named Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama one of America’s best midsize employers in an annual ranking conducted in partnership with market firm Statista.

Blue Cross ranked No. 110 out of 400 companies that received recognition. This is the sixth year Blue Cross has been named a Best Employer in the midsize category.

Rankings are based on a survey of more than 170,000 U.S. employees at American companies. Forbes looked at companies in all sectors with employment of at least 1,000 and no more than 5,000.

According to Forbes’ description, “responses were given by current employees, employees who had worked for the company within the past two years, and individuals familiar with the company through friends, family or peers in their industry.”

Previously, the company has been recognized as both one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity and Best-in-State Employers.
