May 14, 2019 09:15AM

For the second consecutive year BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina was named to Forbes “America’s Best Large Employers” list.

Forbes magazine annually ranks the nation’s top 500 large employers in 25 industries based on working conditions, salary, potential for development and company image. BlueCross is one of eight health insurance providers nationwide — including three other Blue Cross companies — to make the list. In addition, five other South Carolina-based companies made the list.

“Our organization is a large enterprise that attracts and retains outstanding talent in order to best serve our varied customers,” said David Cote, vice president of Human Resources at BlueCross. “We offer competitive compensation and benefit programs that offer flexibility those employees need in striking a positive work-life balance. We actively promote and support professional development through education assistance programs and access to a wealth of sponsored training opportunities. These open doors to a variety of career opportunities within the organization while fostering positive employee retention. In addition, we are serious about our corporate leadership role in South Carolina and understand that our employees value our brand and reputation for good corporate citizenship.”

Forbes, in partnership with market research firm Statista, surveyed more than 50,000 Americans working for companies with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents were asked to anonymously rate on a scale from zero to 10 how likely they would be to recommend their employer to others. They were also asked to nominate organizations outside their own industry.
