Our Culture

Our culture is centered on caring.

Our employees will tell you: We’ve created a way of working that’s rewarding. We will help you find your own path to success, giving you opportunities to gain knowledge and experience. Placing an emphasis on workplace relationships and communication. Inspiring you—and every employee—to be your best, do your best, and feel your best.

We do that by promoting:

  • Flexibility in how you work, which allows for improved work/life balance
  • A sense of belonging through established work groups and communities
  • Skill-enhancement programs through Blue University®
  • Financial support for advanced education
  • An on-site fitness center and on-site café serving local farm-fresh food
  • Workplace wellness initiatives

These benefits, among others—including compensation that rises above most of the local established businesses—are just a few of the reasons we’re recognized as an employer of choice in Rhode Island.

Our culture is built on values.

Here at Blue Cross, our ultimate goal is to make high quality healthcare more affordable and simple for Rhode Islanders.

We strive to achieve that goal by executing on our company’s strategic priorities, embracing opportunities to innovate, and creating an exceptional experience for our customers, who are at the heart of every job, every day.

Our employees will tell you: We live by our corporate values of collaboration, accountability, integrity, and respect. These values – and the behaviors that support them – are foundational to who we are and how we define ourselves as a company. They guide our actions and the way we work together, inspiring trust among our colleagues, customers, and community stakeholders. They drive our high performance accountable culture.

We set high expectations of ourselves, so that we can deliver on our promise of affordable and simple healthcare for Rhode Island.
