Forbes names America’s Best Midsize Employers
How do you identify the best employers in the country? What makes one company better to work for than another?
Well, Forbes has it down to a science. The company partnered with market research firm Statista to survey 60,000 Americans. The criteria? Each one had to work for a business with at least 1,000 employees.
The survey asked participants to rate their “willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family, and to nominate organizations other than their own” to find the top contenders. The final list is compiled of the 500 midsize employers that got the most recommendations.
Alabama proud—7 companies make the cut
Seven Alabama companies were honored on the top 500 list, and two made it into the top 100! They are:
- #22: COLSA Corporation (Huntsville)
- #91: Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama (Birmingham)
- #234: AAA Cooper Transportation (Dothan)
- #260: Books-A-Million (Birmingham)

“It is a true honor to be named one of our nation’s top 100 best midsize employers. What makes this recognition even more meaningful is knowing this is the result of feedback from our own employees. We are committed to providing a healthy and positive work environment for our employees who work hard every day to take exceptional care of our customers.”Tim Vines, President and CEO, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama
