BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee named top employer for women

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has been recognized as a 2022 Best Employer for Women by Forbes, ranking 12th out of 400 employers across the nation.

"Women make up 74 percent of our workforce, so we understand the need for a culture where our employees feel fulfilled and able to balance their work and personal lives," said Ron Harris, vice president of corporate workforce diversity for the Chattanooga-based health insurer. "It's rewarding to see our commitment honored with the highest ranking in Tennessee and among other insurers and Blue plans."

The Best Employers for Women rankings were determined through an independent survey from a sample of approximately 50,000 U.S. employees – including 30,000 women – who work for companies with at least 1,000 people.
