RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, compare.com, the leading auto insurance comparison website in the United States, announced it is relocating its national headquarters to accommodate its continued growth. The new location will feature 26,000 square feet of office space in the East Shore office complex in Richmond, Virginia. In addition to growing its insurance carrier partnerships, compare.com has welcomed nearly one dozen new employees since January 2016 and plans to grow its workforce by 40 percent by the end of 2017.
Compare.com has turned to its own employees to offer suggestions and themes for the new design, as well as sourcing artistry from local muralists to decorate the new space. Compare.com’s new office building will feature a full gym, free coffee bar, standing desks and a game room.
“Beyond the educated workforce that we have been able to harness here, Richmond also boasts a growing arts and foodie culture that we want to pay homage to in our new office,” stated compare.com CEO Andrew Rose. “With Richmond’s proximity to Washington, DC, we’ve been able to cultivate exceptional talent, while offering candidates a ‘big small city,’ which attracts Millennials and local artisans. The start-up scene from Capital One’s formation in the city is another element that gives Richmond appeal; I like to refer to it as ‘Silicon River.’ We’re excited for the new headquarters and look forward to continuing to serve customers and carriers across the nation,” added Rose.
While compare.com is building its office based on the recommendations of employees, the dedication compare.com employs to meet employees’ needs doesn’t stop at infrastructure. Listed as one of the “Top Workplaces of 2016” by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, one of the “Fastest Growing Companies of the Year” by Best in Biz Awards and one of the “Most Innovative Tech Companies of the Year,” by the Stevie Awards, compare.com works to create a company culture that supports its employees in every aspect of their lives, from granting four weeks of vacation time to supplying fresh fruit daily.
