HOUSTON, TEXAS – May 8, 2019 – Empyrean Benefit Solutions, Inc., the Hi-Touch Benefits Administration company, announced today the signing of a long term lease for its Houston headquarters to remain at its current location. Empyrean worked with the brokers Newmark Knight Frank on the lease.
Empyrean’s headquarters are located at 3010 Briarpark Drive in Westchase, a major business district in West Houston. The company moved to the Westchase-area offices as a temporary measure after its prior location was impacted by Tropical Storm Harvey in 2017. Over the past 1 ½ years, Empyrean leaders have assessed the organization’s constant year-over-year growth, hiring trends, and employee feedback – ultimately determining that Empyrean’s current location will best serve the long-term needs of Empyrean’s operations and workforce.
“We carefully considered all options and evaluated several locations within the Westchase area when deciding on a permanent location. This area is particularly convenient for many of our Houston-based employees, which was a significant factor in our decision to remain here,” said Richard Wolfe, Empyrean’s co-founder and CEO. “We have developed an extensive list of upgrades for the space, which we’re excited to now start executing. We look forward to creating a more modern, flexible, and collaborative workspace for employees and visiting clients alike.”
Empyrean will begin sweeping renovations to the 107,000 square feet that it currently occupies at 3010 Briarpark. The company has already begun working with designers and architects to create a productive and energizing environment that reflects the technology firm’s unique culture, and enables its team to deliver the market-leading products and award-winning service that has lead Empyrean to 97% client retention.
“When clients, guests, and employees first enter into our reception area or demo environment, they will see extensive improvements to plan, collaborate, build, and serve,” said Wolfe. “We value our employees and want Empyrean’s space to be reflective of the culture we are all helping to build over the long-term.”
In addition to its Houston office, Empyrean has fully operational service centers near Nashville in La Vergne, Tennessee, and in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Empyrean also leverages remote employees and has developed technological infrastructure and operational flexibility to securely manage client workload across locations as needed. This approach takes advantage of talent nationwide, enables business continuity, and provides exceptional service resilience under any circumstances.
