TNECD: GOVERNOR HASLAM, TNECD ANNOUNCE SEDGWICK CLAIMS MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC. TO EXPAND CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS IN MEMPHIS
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, the Department of Economic and Community Development and Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc. officials announced today that the technology-enabled risk and benefits solutions management company will expand its corporate headquarters in Shelby County. Sedgwick will invest $34 million and create 150 new high-quality jobs in Memphis.
“Sedgwick has been a valued member of the Memphis community for many years, and when a company like this chooses to expand in our state, it shows how focused Tennessee is on making sure existing businesses have room to grow and excel,” Haslam said. “I thank Sedgwick for bringing us one step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
Headquartered in Memphis, Sedgwick is a global corporation focused on delivering services that include management of workers’ compensation, disability, FMLA, property and specialty claims, as well as managed care, special and forensic investigation, Medicare and OSHA solutions and risk consulting. Nearly 15,000 colleagues in approximately 275 offices in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Ireland serve more than 2.6 million claimants each year.
With this expansion, Sedgwick will consolidate its headquarters into a single campus in Shelby County and locate R&D functions at the site. Sedgwick has made an investment in an innovation lab focused on developing technology for next-generation claims management models centered on the needs of the client and the claimant. By redesigning the claims management process, the company would not only improve the client and claimant experience, but also give its colleagues a more meaningful work experience.
