Forbes recently named BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee one of the country’s top employers for diversity.

BCBST, No. 33 out of 250, is the highest-ranked organization in Tennessee and the second-highest-ranked health insurer on the 2018 list.

Forbes compiled its ranking with the help of research firm Statista by interviewing 30,000 employees across the U.S. in August. The survey included questions about ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender and age.


“It’s an honor to receive this recognition, which validates our historical and ongoing efforts to build a workplace culture where every person is valued and respected,” BCBST Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion Ron Harris said in a prepared statement.

In 2016, BCBST made Forbes’ list of best places to work.
