Insurance company Centene is canceling its plans to move its east coast headquarters to Charlotte, despite its 80-acre campus being nearly finished. The main reason is that 90% of the company workforce currently works in a remote or hybrid schedule. 

Companies are still deciding what´s best for their teams: remote or in-office. While many leaders have declared that remote work harms productivity and collaboration, others have gained positive results through establishing flexible arrangements. 

Centene Embraces Remote Work

The 80-acre campus near UNC Charlotte will be finished in a few weeks. However, the company established that it would no longer set its headquarters in the area, as 90% of its workforce is remote, so its not necessary. 

A Centene spokesperson said according to Kmov: 

“Since announcing our plans to establish an East Coast headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, there has been a fundamental shift in how people want to work. Today, almost 90% of our workforce is working fully remote or in a hybrid work environment, and workplace flexibility is essential to attracting and retaining our top talent. As a result of this shift, we have decided not to open an East Coast headquarters in Charlotte, and many of our 1,700 employees across the state will work remotely or in a hybrid working model that suits their personal needs.
