Capital Blue Cross has stretched its streak of “Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania” honors to six straight years, finishing 15th among large companies – Capital’s highest ranking ever on the prestigious list.
“It’s especially gratifying to win again given the award is based upon anonymous survey responses from our employees, who have sacrificed and adjusted so much to so many challenges and changes over the past several years,” said Capital Blue Cross President and CEO Todd Shamash. “While I am biased, we are fortunate to have the best team in the market!”
Capital Blue Cross evolved its workplace in response to the pandemic, adapting to keep its employees safer, take advantage of improved technologies, and increase efficiencies. While many Capital employees will continue to work remotely or have a hybrid arrangement, Capital is moving forward with plans to more consistently connect its staff in-person, expanding upon the new collaboration tools, monthly connection days, and team-building activities it’s featured the past two years.
“We’re grateful to be recognized among the Best Places to Work in PA for the sixth year in a row,” said Jodi Woleslagle, Capital Blue Cross senior vice president of human resources. “This honor truly exemplifies Capital’s dedication to our employees, and it’s rewarding to know our employees continue to recognize our efforts to go the extra mile to make Capital a great place to work.”
Capital was among just 46 large companies to make the cut when The Best Places to Work in PA rankings were announced this week. This year’s list honors 153 employers in all, divided into small (15-99 employees), medium (100-249) and large (250-plus) categories.
Best Places to Work in PA is a project of the Central Penn Business Journal and Lehigh Valley Business, and the awards are held in partnership with Best Companies Group.
