Benefitfocus Unveils New Multi-Million Dollar Design and Engineering Building in Daniel Island, South Carolina
“Our super-talented team of software engineers is truly dedicated to the special work they do and solving the complex issues software design presents,” stated Shawn Jenkins, Benefitfocus President and CEO. “We are engineering a better way for companies to manage benefits, and raising the interaction in a social workplace like this is just the beginning in creating the best place to work for the best minds in the country.”
Founded in 2000, Benefitfocus has experienced steady growth in response to the accelerating demand for cloud-based benefits management technology. Since the Charleston-based software company moved its corporate headquarters from Mount Pleasant to the Daniel Island campus in October 2006, it has more than doubled the number of associates.
Gov. Nikki Haley said; “The founders of Benefitfocus, Shawn Jenkins and Mason Holland, constantly say that it is their associates that make them good. In my mind it's the companies that make us great and Benefitfocus is one of the reasons that we have become the ‘it’ state in South Carolina.”
“When a company like Benefitfocus decides to grow in South Carolina, it shows the world that our state is a competitive place for high-tech firms to set up shop. This announcement also will bring hundreds of new jobs to the Lowcountry that will have impact,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
