Accolade Eyes 5th Headquarters Expansion In Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania
Accolade will expand operations at its existing facility at 660 West Germantown Pike in Plymouth Meeting, 18.7 miles north of Philadelphia. This is the company’s fifth expansion since 2012. The company will invest $2 million in the project, and it has committed to creating 250 new jobs over three years and to retaining 541 existing positions. New employee hiring is expected to begin in April 2017.
“Accolade is honored to receive an offer of support from the commonwealth,” said Elizabeth Napolitano, Executive Vice President of Human Resources at Accolade. “We look forward to putting it to good use in expanding our employee base across all of our business units and in providing our Health Assistants access to additional technology to help them better serve our clients in getting the best healthcare outcomes.”
Accolade received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $500,000 Pennsylvania First program grant and $500,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon the creation of the new jobs.
“Accolade’s decision to choose Pennsylvania as the best place for its fifth expansion over any other location speaks volumes to our highly-skilled and dedicated workforce,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “I applaud Accolade for recognizing and investing in the great talents of our first-class workforce. My budget proposal continues to support companies like Accolade who are dedicated to expanding in the commonwealth and creating good, middle-class jobs for Pennsylvanians.”
The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.
