SYRACUSE, NY – Excellus BlueCross BlueShield was ranked #8 on the Forbes 2024 list of America’s Best Midsize Employers.

This is the second consecutive year that Excellus BCBS has been named to the list.

“We’re thrilled to once again be named a top employer in the United States. It is thanks to our employees that we maintain an inclusive, supportive culture where we work collaboratively to ensure our members have access to high quality, affordable care,” said Excellus BCBS President and CEO Jim Reed.

“We remain committed to cultivating an environment where our employees can thrive by focusing on employee wellbeing, growth and development, diversity, equity and inclusion, comprehensive employee benefits, a flexible work environment and more,” Reed added.

This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., a global data and business intelligence platform established in Germany in 2007.

America’s best employers are identified using an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 170,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S.

The final ranking is based on two types of evaluations:

  • Personal - Given by employees, also known as direct evaluations.
  • Public - Given by friends and family members of employees, or members of the public who work in the same industry, also known as indirect evaluations, with a much higher weighting for personal evaluations.

The ranking is divided into two lists of 600: one for the top large companies with more than 5,000 U.S. employees, and another for the top midsize companies with 1,000 to 5,000. Based on the results of the study, Excellus BCBS has been recognized on the Forbes list of America’s Best Midsize Employers 2024.
