"We are thrilled to be up for the award again this year," said Albert Crawford, chairman and CEO of Bankers Healthcare Group. "At BHG, we encourage both initiative and team work and we strive to provide an environment that promotes overall wellness in addition to productivity."
BHG experienced a year of dynamic growth, highlighted by a move to the company's new financial headquarters.

Equipped with an onsite fitness center, employees are offered personal training and nutrition counseling.

Throughout the year, employees are recognized with awards for their performance and commitment to BHG's core values, said Crawford.
