CareWorks Family of Companies Signs Long Term Incentive Plan with City of Dublin
(DUBLIN, OHIO) Dublin-based CareWorks Family of Companies has plans to add 250 jobs over the next 12 years, according to an approved tax-incentive deal with the City of Dublin.
The jobs creation incentive, approved by Dublin City Council, extends a 2013 agreement that would have expired in 2017. It calls for the company to retain 1,185 jobs and add 250, for an incentive capped at $1.8 million over the life of the agreement if the company creates all the promised jobs. The city estimates its tax collections would increase by $9.7 million in that time.
CareWorks had more than met the goal of its 2013 incentive, which called for it to grow to 860 jobs, making it one of Central Ohio's 100 largest employers, according to Columbus Business First research.
CareWorks has grown larger in the two years since its acquisition by York Risk Services Group, Inc., and its plan to add 250 jobs over the next 12 years would bring it to 1,435 total employees in Dublin.
The company told city officials it wants to expand its Dublin operations in three buildings by leasing another 43,000 square feet in the 5500 Glendon Court facility. The deal also extends CareWorks' access to the city-owned DubLink fiber-optic broadband network.
“CareWorks is pleased to have called Dublin home since 1996. We look forward to expanding our operations and workforce and continuing our strong relationship with the City,” said Dennis Duchene, CareWorks’ President and Chief Operating Officer.
