Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) was recently ranked as a best employer in the state by Forbes.

Forbes, in collaboration with market research company Statista, surveyed 80,000 Americans working at businesses with at least 500 employees to identify the best employers in each state. Results were compiled for all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia.

BCBSNE ranked eighth on Nebraska’s list, which included a wide-variety of industries, such as education, hospitality and finance.

“It’s so important that we foster a culture where our employees feel like they belong and have room to grow,” Joni Wheeler, BCBSNE’s chief talent and information services officer, said. “It’s an honor to know that our team members appreciate BCBSNE and the opportunities we have to make a difference for our members and the community.”
