The new call center, where the company will hire 50 people, was strategically placed in an area of St. Paul with a diverse workforce, yet grappled with high unemployment. More than 1,000 employee hours went into the effort, and company leaders met with community groups to better understand the needs of the community, as well as the experiences of the diverse people who live in the neighborhood.
Medica is committed to hiring full-time workers for the Midway office and to prioritize jobs to workers who live in the five ZIP codes surrounding the office. It hired female- and minority-owned building contractors to help prepare the new office in St. Paul, which will occupy a 7,000 square-foot space in the Wilder Foundation building. Geoff Bartsh, Medica senior vice president, left, and Rob Geyer, Medica chief operations officer, are pictured in the Midway where the center will be located. The two leaders led the charge on this project.
