Global provider of employee well-being services is strengthening its global headquarters in the Triangle ahead of new business surge
Raleigh, N.C. (November 11, 2016) – Workplace Options, the world’s leading provider of integrated employee well-being services, announced today that it will be hiring nearly 50 new staff members at its Raleigh headquarters by the end of 2016.
In preparation for a significant influx of new business from U.S. and global accounts beginning in December, the company is looking to bolster its service delivery staff – which includes telephonic counseling positions, work-life consultants, and customer service roles across a number of different teams.
“We’ve been in a period of steady growth for nearly a decade, but due to several new contracts that will take effect in December and the early part of 2017, we are looking to hire and train several new staff members very quickly,” said Dean Debnam, Workplace Options CEO. “Currently, we have almost 450 employees at our Raleigh locations. That number will grow to more than 500 by early next year.”
To accommodate the growth, Debnam explained that the company will expand to new office space in the Highwoods Business Park. In addition to the two buildings fully occupied by Workplace Options now, he also owns three additional properties in the Park totaling 185,000 sq. feet of office space.
“Our global headquarters is comprised of three different locations in close proximity off of Highwoods Boulevard in Raleigh,” he said. “We will either be adding space in a fourth building, or expanding capacity in one of the existing buildings to make room for this round of new hiring and likely several more that will follow in short order.”
Over the past five years, Workplace Options has nearly doubled in size as it has grown both internationally and domestically. The company now has 13 Global Service Centers in nine different countries, with the imminent prospect of further expansion.
“Around the world, employers are realizing that investments in the well-being of their employees generally pay off several times over,” Debnam explained. “We offer services that make people happier, healthier, and more productive. Everything we do is designed to help in a slightly different way, and companies around the world know that when they give people the support they need, employees have the ability to perform at a whole new level.”
