Jeanie Heffernan: The 'People' Person
Through her work leading the Human Resources department at Independence Blue Cross, Jeanie Heffernan helps the company build a culture and structure that support the corporate mission.
As the leading health insurance organization in the Greater Philadelphia region, Independence Blue Cross prides itself on enhancing the health and well-being of the people and communities in which they have served for the past 80 years.
With its mission front-of-mind, Independence is always on the look-out for committed, dedicated, and innovative people who can help drive the company’s passion for solving some of health care’s biggest challenges. A key executive leading that strategy since joining Independence in 2011 is Jeanie Heffernan, executive vice president and chief human resources officer.
On November 27, I had the opportunity to speak with Heffernan about her role with the company and much more.
