Work-Life Balance

Our daily experiences with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama members facing sickness or injury have taught us what really matters when dealing with others. Using those same principles, we have shaped our work environment to focus on our employees' needs.

In addition to state-of-the art conference rooms, technology and equipment, the Company provides other amenities to enhance your time at the office. These services can ease the demands of your life and help you achieve a balance between work and home.

Associate Health Office

Our nursing staff is available to assist Corporate Office employees with minor health concerns, offer ergonomic desk assessments and coordinate a medical leave for all locations when the need arises.

The Caring Corner

Parents always have the option of staying home with a sick child. However, if you have a mildly ill child and prefer to come to work, The Caring Corner is a convenient resource available to you. This facility, located adjacent to our Bright Horizons childcare facility allows your child to recuperate in comfortable surroundings with the attention of trained professionals, including an on-call pediatrician. The facility also features safe rooms for the children and staff when needing to seek shelter due to inclement weather. You are always just a phone call away, and will receive a complete report at the end of the day.

This facility, operated by Bright Horizons Family Solutions, has met the rigorous accreditation standards set forth by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). Bright Horizons' honors include:

Located within one mile of the Corporate Office, the center boasts hurricane-rated windows, light-filled classrooms, and hands-on learning.
