Compare.com will be relocating to a new Richmond, VA office with
plans to grow its workforce 40% by the end of 2017
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.
