WageWorks opens Williston office

Observer staff report
Dozens of employees have finished moving into their new office space in Maple Tree Place this week.
WageWorks, Inc., which administers consumer-directed benefits, relocated its Choice Strategies division from Waterbury Center to Williston. The company was set to host a ribbon cutting ceremony and luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the new office, located at 28 Walnut Street, Suite 250.
“Our organization has seen tremendous growth over the past five years and as a result, we have outgrown our Waterbury Center location,” WageWorks CEO Joe Jackson said. “The move to our new office at Maple Tree Place allows us to continue the expansion of our business, while providing best-in-class services to our clients and participants. We are also excited about the new location, as it will prominently position Choice Strategies to attract additional high caliber professionals to join our team.”
The company began moving in on Oct. 17, with approximately 120 employees, 85 of them on site.
The new office space is located above Maple Tree Place’s retail stores, and features 13,000 square feet of space. The company is also looking to hire approximately 20 more employees over the next few months, said Dewayne Nickerson, who does PR for WageWorks. The career section of its website, www.wageworks.com/about/careers, currently lists openings for four client services representatives and six seasonal member services representatives.
Founded in 2001, Choice Strategies specializes in helping small to medium-sized businesses and their employees save money by administering pre-tax benefit plans, including Health Reimbursement Arrangements, Flexible Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts. Choice Strategies was acquired by WageWorks in 2012. The California-based company has 11 offices nationwide, including the new Williston location.
