HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. - Four years ago, Fort Wayne-Based BeniComp Health Solutions relocated to downtown Tampa. The company expanded its staff and put down new roots in an East Kennedy office building.

But these days, all of BeniComp’s 30 employees included President Steve Presser are working from home.

“We were 100% in office,” said Presser. “It had been part of our tradition to always be an in-office collaborative team, and when COVID hit that changed everything.”

Benicomp joins a growing list of companies including Facebook, Google and Twitter that are allowing its workers to telecommute indefinitely amid concerns of Covid-19 contagion.

“Nobody has a crystal ball,” said Presser. “We don’t know how long this will go so what we’ve done we’ve made a commitment to virtual.“
