About Blue Cross


What is it like to work for Blue Cross

My Team
My Team

Blue Cross run a psychometric called ‘insights’ and using this for a full day’s event. They have also had two off-site full team days looking at their directorate and their business issues. Executive team have had two full day events and a long weekend team building intervention. The team building weekend for the executive team was an exceptional event. People were put in several scenarios which meant they were under huge pressure and out of their comfort zones entirely. It has made everyone a tighter team, more respectful and caring to each other, as well as focussed everyone more on their relationships with each other rather than simply getting the job done!

To embrace the areas Blue Cross excel in and to put together a robust action plan to address areas where they can improve.
