Date:9/16/2014

Newark, NJ (PRWEB) September 16, 2014

Working Mother magazine has named Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) as one of the 2014 Working Mother 100 Best Companies for its commitment to family-friendly workplace programs, including child care, flexible work arrangements and paid family leave. This is the fifth consecutive year that Horizon BCBSNJ has been recognized as one of Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies.

“Horizon believes that cultivating an environment in which our employees can maintain a healthy balance between work and home is key to serving our 3.7 million members with dedication and excellence,” said Alison Banks-Moore, Chief Diversity Officer at Horizon BCBSNJ. The company was recognized by Working Mother for the programs it offers to create a welcoming and supportive workplace, including such new initiatives as “Step it Up,” which is an intranet-based, company-wide recognition program that allows peers and managers to commend workers for their achievements and leadership. The company’s recognition also reflects the creation of Horizon BCBSNJ’s newest Affinity Group, Women LEAD, whose efforts are intended to broaden employees’ understanding of diversity and the numerous advantages of encouraging and sustaining an inclusive, respectful workforce.

These programs supplement other employee-focused initiatives, including:

  •     An Alternative Work Arrangement Program, including flextime, telecommuting and job sharing, to help support a work/life balance
  •     A full health risk assessment as well as health counseling and education
  •     Access to an on-site health center, lab facility, pharmacy and fitness center
  •     Tuition reimbursement, in-house classroom training, online training and certification classes
  •     Leadership development training
  •     On-site child care center
  •     Adoption benefits
  •     A benefits program for full- and part-time employees working 20+ hours per week
  •     A 401(k) plan with employer match to its full- and part-time employees and financial planning information

Horizon BCBSNJ will be celebrated at this year’s Working Mother 100 Best Companies WorkLife Congress, taking place October 13-15, 2014, at the Marriot Marquis in New York City.
