SPRINGFIELD, OHIO (August 10, 2012) CodeBlue, a national leader in third party insurance claims administration, is scheduled to begin building a Springfield, Ohio home on Aug. 1 in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. The company, with command centers in Springfield, Ohio and Eau Claire, Wis., is committed to helping residents of this Midwestern community thrive as they continue to rebound from high unemployment and declining manufacturing.
“The entire Springfield community has been so welcoming to us, and we have discovered a talented and driven workforce here,” said Paul Gross, CodeBlue president and CEO. “It’s only fitting we give back to the area, and teaming up with Habitat for Humanity is the ideal partnership for us.”
Employees are scheduled to build two to three days per week during their regular work hours as well as some service hours on the weekends. In total, approximately1,500 hours will be required to complete the home. While employees give their time, they will also be developing skills to help them better understandconstruction processes that apply to their work managing water mitigation claims for major insurance companies.
“This opportunity to work with Habitat for Humanity is a great way to enhance our employee development and camaraderie not only as a company but as a community as well,” said Mike Anderson, Chief Operating Officer of CodeBlue.
Construction on the new home is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
