Opening Day: Employer Flexible Goes All-In with New Headquarters
HOUSTON --(Business Wire)--
Employer Flexible officially opened its new corporate headquarters today
in a move that aims to make client access to the company's quickly
growing resources more efficient.
For the first time, the Texas-based business solutions provider has all
its core disciplines under one roof. The newly completed structure at
7102 North Sam Houston Parkway W. will house the company's human
resources and recruiting operations as well as Empact IT, which Employer
Flexible acquired in 2012.
"We're excited to finally unify the entire company, not just physically
but culturally," Founding Partner Michael Hopkins said. "This space is
built for us and who we want to be, so we can focus even more on
impacting what matters to our clients."
At 55,000 square feet the custom-built office more than triples the size
of the previous space - a much-needed upgrade to accommodate the firm's
growth. Employer Flexible made the Houston Business Journal's Fast 100
list in 2013, which measured revenue growth from 2010-2012.
"Though we only broke ground last year, this resut is really 10 years
in the making," said Founding Partner Chris Dollins. "We've stepped into
some big shoes, but now we have the room we need to keep growing."
One of the biggest driving factors was logistics: as different
departments start working together more closely, it made sense to get
everyone in the same room.
"Each year, more clients are looking to integrate their HR services with
our IT offerings, and vice versa," Empact IT CEO Dave Brysch said.
"Bringing everyone together makes it easier for our teams to solve
Highlights of the three-story headquarters include nine conference
rooms, two state-of-the-art network operations centers (NOCs) and a
multipurpose facility capable of hosting meetings and training events
for as many as 100 people.
"Small businesses don't always have access to a meeting space that
really fits their needs. It made sense to create a dedicated facility
that would serve our clients' needs as well as our own," Founding
Partner Mike Greathouse said.
The Houston-based Urban Cos. led the development efforts, while
Dallas-based Stream Realty Partners LP negotiated the long-term lease on
Employer Flexible's behalf.
Founded in 2003, Employer Flexible has evolved from a traditional
staffing firm into one focused on providing long-term, flexible services
in a number of industries.
