Diversity and Inclusion
At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois we support an environment where all employees feel valued, empowered and recognized for their unique talents, perspectives and differences. Our Center for Diversity and Inclusion embeds a commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout all areas of the company, from how we hire, manage and interact with employees, to how we serve our customers and provide for our communities.
We strive to maintain an inclusive work environment where all employees experience equity. Employees know when they come to work each day they will be treated fairly and with the respect they deserve. We see our organization as one united by our differences and empowered by the strengths each employee brings to the table.
Commitment to Our Members and Communities
We are a proud member of the Blues family and we have the largest PPO network in the state of Illinois, which gives you a wide choice of doctors, hospitals, and health care professionals. We recognize that to remain an employer of choice, we must connect to what matters most to our customers and the communities in which they live and work. Health care needs from multicultural homes across the country will vary, and to that end, we are committed to offering a variety of health and life insurance products and related services that will meet the unique needs of our members by meeting them where they are.
