HR tech leader expands remote office into a regional hub, with plans to continue hiring over a three-year period, its Denver workforce increased from 30 to more than 160 employees
WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (September 19, 2017) — Businessolver, a leader in SaaS-based benefits administration technology, is celebrating the third anniversary of its Denver office. Since its opening in 2014, the company’s Denver location has evolved from a remote office to a regional hub.
Over a three-year period, Businessolver leaders in Denver have focused on expanding the company’s talent base, enhancing client services, driving product innovation, and fueling business growth: the Denver team has grown from 30 to more than 160 employees, a 433 percent increase. In August, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper recognized Businessolver as one of the fastest-growing companies in the state.
Although originally focused on sales, talent at the Denver hub has since diversified to include senior-level hires who lead national teams of employees focused on participant services, client success and operations, product and technology development, and marketing and communications.
Amid the location’s rapid growth, the team has never lost sight of Businessolver’s unique culture. Like Businessolver’s other offices, Denver employees enjoy an open office space that drives collaboration, complimentary catered meals, the flexibility and freedom to enjoy the outdoors, and a bounty of opportunities to get involved in the community.
The Denver team is particularly dedicated to philanthropy, supporting organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House and raising more than $10,000 participating in the Courage Classic, a two-day mountain-bike race benefiting Children’s Hospital Colorado.
“In the three years since we opened the Denver office, we’ve expanded our Solver family with incredible talent, grown our business by continuing to deliver delight to our clients, and shown our commitment to the community by getting involved and giving back,” said Josh Holman, Vice President of Client Engagement at Businessolver and founder of the Denver hub. “As a Denver native, I’m humbled that an organization I’ve dedicated my career to can make such an indelible impact on my hometown.”
Looking ahead, Businessolver plans to expand both the physical footprint of the Denver office and double the size of the local team; its hiring trajectory is already on track to have more than 200 Denver-based employees in 2018.
“The war for talent is highly competitive, with recruitment and retention ranking as a top concern for many leaders. Our Denver team is a great example of how a growth mindset, commitment to client delight, and strong culture are critical to building a successful company,” said Jon Shanahan, President and CEO at Businessolver. “Denver is a booming market and an important regional hub for us. We’re thrilled with the team’s progress and excited about our future there.”
Since 1998, Businessolver has delivered market-changing benefits administration technology supported by an intrinsic responsiveness to client needs. It creates client programs that maximize benefit program investment, minimize risk exposure, and engage employees with easy-to-use solutions and communication tools to assist them in making wise and cost-efficient benefit selections. Founded by HR professionals, Businessolver’s unwavering service-oriented culture and secure SaaS platform provide measurable success in its mission to provide complete client delight.
