Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana was recently named as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge, placing ninth in the large company categoryThis is the third year in a row that Blue Cross has placed in the top 10 companies. The awards program is a project of the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report, the Greater Baton Rouge SHRM (an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management) and Best Companies Group.

This survey and awards program was created in 2014 to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Baton Rouge, benefiting its economy, its workforce and businesses.  

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 employees working in the nine-parish Capital Region (large companies have 250 or more employees);
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business or government entity/municipality;
  • Have a facility in Baton Rouge; and
  • Must be in business a minimum of one year. 

Companies from across the region entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge. The initial assessment, worth about 25 percent of the score, evaluated each company’s workplace policies, practices and demographics. The second part of the process measured employee experience via a survey of randomly selected employees. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the registration and survey process in Baton Rouge, as well as analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.
