SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
A Sioux City employer is recognized for job growth and a newly remodeled facility.
First Administrators, Incorporated, a third party administrator for Wellmark Incorporate got the "Growing Sioux City Award."
During the past year, FAI has added 30 new jobs to its Sioux City location and remodeled its 34,000 square foot office space on Zenith Drive.
The office now has natural lighting, ergonomic furniture, and a fitness center.
"It's a great celebration. We all know that Blue Cross Wellmark and First Administrators have a lot of different options with the type of employees that they bring to the community for them to continue to operate in Sioux City is really good news for us," Bob Scott, the Sioux City Mayor said.
Last year, the company announced it would reduce its Rapid City, S.D. office operations.
Of the 49 employees from that office, six have relocated to Sioux City.
And with new hires, there are now 130 employees working at FAI.
They provide sales, operations and customer service for its health plan members.
"So we are going to continue the learning adventure and we've mapped all of our processes and our next step would be to improve those processes and take the waste out and that we have very meaningful work here within the employee base and low costs because our customers count on us to be a very cost effective health plan," Vicki Signor, the Senior Vice President of Operations for Iowa and South Dakota.
The company got a plaque and a tree to signify the growth of the business and to help beautify the area around it.
