We are committed to investing in our people. As our company and industry continue to change, our most valuable asset remains the same — our employees. Building capabilities that help employees better serve our members is key to our long-term success. We seek talented individuals passionate about the work they do, and the impact they seek, as they progress in their careers.
Learning is at the Heart of What We Do
Blue UniversitySM is the central hub of a learning ecosystem that continually regenerates, replenishes, and refreshes to help employees build skills that are relevant and current.
More than just classrooms or online courses, it’s the mindset that learning and growing is constant, building those necessary future skills to better serve our members. It’s home to several colleges organized around core business functions to help employees learn more about our company, our industry and our business through various experiences.
