Capital Blue Cross has been named one of the “Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania” for the fourth consecutive year, placing 23rd among large companies.
“This honor is particularly meaningful because it is awarded based on employees’ evaluations of our company and our culture,” said Capital Blue Cross President and CEO Todd Shamash. “It’s satisfying to know that, even amid the ongoing challenges of a pandemic, our employees continue to hold Capital Blue Cross in the same high esteem we hold them. I’m proud and impressed by their continued professionalism and commitment as we navigate a reimagined workplace.”
Most Capital Blue Cross employees began working remotely in March 2020 to best ensure their safety and well-being, while a small number of staff continued to work onsite to provide critical support services. As the COVID-19 pandemic evolved, Capital did too, reinventing the way its employees work. Many now have full-time remote working status, while some have hybrid in-office/at-home schedules and a smaller number work full-time onsite.
“We are so appreciative,” said Jodi Woleslagle, Capital Blue Cross senior vice president of human resources. “We work hard here to create a supportive, progressive, compassionate work culture. We want to be a place where people enjoy coming to work each day, and know that their company cares about them. That is a critical element in Capital’s ongoing success, and this honor reminds us that we’re on the right track.”
The annual Best Places to Work list honors 100 total employers, divided into small (15-99 employees), medium (100-249) and large (250-plus) categories.
Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania is a public/private partnership founded by Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, and the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management.
