Farmers Insurance plans to significantly expand its operations in Phoenix, Ariz., which the carrier said could eventually raise its employee base from roughly 500 full-time employees to more than 1,500 employees.
Staffing for the new jobs would occur in phases and could ultimately triple the number of full-time Farmers positions in the Phoenix area, the Los Angeles, Calif.-based carrier said.
The first group of employees could begin working in the new building by early next year.
A new Farmers building will be used by the organization to provide operational support for its customers and agents across the country, and members of the Farmers Claims team will also be located in the new facility, the company said.
Farmers already has more than 500 employees in Arizona, primarily in their claims operation, the majority of whom are located in the greater Phoenix area.
Farmers are trade names for a group of affiliated insurers providing insurance for automobiles, homes and small businesses and a range of other insurance and financial services and products.
