Allstate has closed its Chubbuck call center, ID. This is after most of its employees opted to work remotely.
Allstate’s 78,000-square foot facility opened in 2011 and provided new opportunities for 500 to 600 jobs.
The insurance company confirmed that the Idaho County Free Press office was closed.
Tanya Robinson, an Allstate representative, stated in an email that “Allstate employees have more control over where they work” and that many of them are choosing to work remotely. “We no longer require as much office space, and we are moving our office to Chubbuck.”
Rob Corrington, senior leader of Allstate Chubbuck office, also stated that Allstate will continue to recruit in Southeast Idaho despite the site closing.
Corrington said that Allstate employees are more likely to stay with the company if they work in the same area as them.
Idaho County Free Press also reached to Don Zebe of Colliers who confirmed that he’s working to get the building at 4200 Hawthorne Road either leased or purchased.
Allstate announced last month that it would increase its auto insurance rates to meet inflationary increases in auto insurance severity.
