Learning and growing can happen at any age, don’t you think? Karen Fergusson, a Florida Blue employee of 28 years, lives by this mantra. Our third Blue Community Champion of the Year is a disarming, genuine kind of person who knows how to put complicated matters in very plain terms.

I’m probably like so many other women my age. I’m a mom that works full-time. I know the basic principles behind good nutrition and I know how good it feels to eat right. BUT… it is really hard to eat right when the world gets [...]

Ever have the good fortune of making a decision and not realizing the consequences would be far-reaching, unexpectedly positive, and life-affirming? Julie Engelien is one such lucky individual, and she is the second Blue Community Champion of the Year we are featuring in our series. Julie works in our National Accounts area and has been with Florida Blue for nearly 20 years.  She was recognized f [...]

We’d like to take a moment to recognize this real-life superwoman. Not only is she the mother of four children, but she’s also been a Human Resources representative for nearly 19 years. Can’t imagine taking on even more responsibility? She also volunteers and mentors at-risk school children.

We are #FloridaProud about the organizations we’re featuring in this week’s blog. But we want to hear f [...]

What Moves Us

How do Florida Blue employees pursue their health? The social media team had an opportunity to ask just that at the recent Diversity Expo, part of a larger Diversity Conference held at the Jacksonville campus each year. Each employee had a unique answer to the question “What do you do in the pursuit of health?” [...]

When we were planning our latest television commercial, we started to think about not just what we do, but what we believe in.  Like all members of Florida’s communities, we’re proud of where we come from and we’re even prouder of the people we work with.
