Forbes Magazine Ranks Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield Among the Nation's Best Employers of 2022

Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield is honored to be named to Forbes’ list of “America’s Best Employers,” earning the distinction of being among the top 100 in its size category. Arkansas Blue Cross was listed among the magazine’s mid-size companies with approximately 3,200 employees.

“The measure of any successful company is the talent and commitment of its employees – employees who recognize daily that their work truly makes a difference in the lives of our customers and the strength of our communities,” said Arkansas Blue Cross President and CEO Curtis Barnett. “For more than 70 years, Arkansas Blue Cross has worked hard to recruit and build an evolving team of smart, caring people who have created a culture of engagement and excellence. We are committed to keeping our company environment equally as inviting and rewarding for our special team.”

The Forbes list was based on an independent survey conducted anonymously by multiple online panels. Respondents were asked if they would recommend their employer to friends or family, to rank things like salary and work conditions and other work-related questions.

Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield was ranked 99 out of the top 500 mid-size companies. This is not the first time Forbes has recognized Arkansas Blue Cross as one of the nation’s top employers. The company has also been named one of Forbes’ “Best Employers By State” and was on Arkansas Business’s list of “Best Places to Work.”
