Richmond, Va. (January 24, 2024) – Elephant Insurance today announced its relocation to a newoffice space on Park Central Drive in Richmond, Va. The move reflects the company’s transition to a remote work model in early 2021. It will also provide a space for in-person collaboration and team meetings.
“The decision to relocate to a smaller office space aligns with our commitment to fostering a flexible and supportive work environment for our employees,” said Alberto Schiavon, CEO of Elephant Insurance. “Since we have embraced a remote workforce, we believe this new space is right-sized to provide the necessary environment for our teams to connect, collaborate, and maintain the strong company culture that has been instrumental in our success.”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Elephant was among the first employers in Richmond to embrace remote work. With notable agility, the company transitioned to a fully remote workforce of over 600 employees within a mere two weeks. This shift not only ensured the health and safety of employees during a critical time but also revealed the effectiveness of remote work arrangements.
Recognizing the benefits of both remote and in-office settings, Elephant empowers employees to choose the work environment that best suits their individual needs and preferences. The new office space will serve as a hub for employees who prefer an in-office environment as well as accommodate monthly Connected Days, a series of days each month to bring teams together for in-person connection and collaboration, a highly valued part of the culture at Elephant.
“We’re excited about the opportunities this new office space will create for our employees,” said Mel Iverson, Head of People Services at Elephant. “We believe this space along with our remote work policy will enable us to retain top talent, enhance employee satisfaction, and continue to deliver exceptional service to our customers.”
