Fleet Response, an auto third party administrator (TPA) offering claims, safety, and compliance solutions for fleet, risk, and safety teams, has celebrated the opening of its new headquarters. Fleet Response HQ, located in Hudson, Ohio, will accommodate the company’s growing staff and provide a range of services including auto, property, and general liability claims management as well as subrogation services
The event featured a ribbon-cutting and remarks by Hudson Chamber of Commerce President, Nicole Alverson, the City of Hudson Chief Economic Officer, Jim Stifler, representatives from Holden Forests & Gardens, and Fleet Response CEO Scott Mawaka. A ceremonial tree was also planted during the event by Holden Forests & Gardens.
The two-story, 43,000 square-foot facility was specifically designed to meet the growing needs of the organization. The new headquarters comes with several workplace perks, including an open office floor plan that fosters greater collaboration between employees, an outside walking path, fresh food market, cafeteria area with access to the outside, and a workout facility. Construction was completed in August 2021 with the return of employees being a phased approach. The facility is designed to support onsite, remote, and hybrid work schedules. The building can accommodate the current 200+ employees and position Fleet Response for growth, too.
Since breaking ground on the new headquarters in September 2020, weekly updates were communicated to employees through Fleet Response’s internal messaging platform, The Communicator. These updates included pictures of weekly development, mockups of new areas, floor plans, videos, and even the chance to pick names for rooms located in the building.
“Providing weekly updates to our employees allowed us the opportunity for employees to be involved in the building progress,” said Vice President of Client Engagement Jodie Varner. “Employees were able to envision where their workspaces were located throughout the building, see where they can eat lunch, or get some fresh air while enjoying the walking path. They were also able to ask questions about our new HQ during the construction process.”
