Tilson expands Greenwood headquarters


Tilson, a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) that provides human resources and benefits solutions, has announced the company’s plans to expand its operations, creating up to 245 new jobs by 2020.

Tilson will invest $1.55 million to renovate and expand its current headquarters at 1530 American Way in Greenwood, while considering long-term sites to accommodate the company's growth. The investment will also be used to upgrade corporate infrastructure to support the expansion.

Founded in 1995 by Brent Tilson, the company currently employs 70 Hoosiers at its corporate headquarters and expects to begin hiring additional human resources and benefits positions this summer. Interested applicants should apply online. 

About Tilson:

Tilson’s integrated management solution provides customized human resources to businesses across the country through specialization in benefits, compensation, risk management, employee relations, health and wellness, finance, human resource information systems (HRIS) and strategic management. The company has a multi-million dollar technology platform and three primary service offerings: PEO services to limit a company’s overhead, human resource management and executive consulting on customized growth strategies. 

The company, which recently acquired Phoenix-based Amerisource HR, has experienced a 51 percent increase in employees under management over the last year. Tilson’s growth has been fueled by considerable interest from key industries, including non-profit organizations, small to midsized businesses and high growth companies. 

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Tilson up to $1,525,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Greenwood will consider additional incentives. 

“Thriving businesses are good for Greenwood and for Indiana,” said Greenwood Mayor Mark Myers. “Tilson’s contribution to the city of Greenwood and business nationwide over the last 20 years is exactly what we hope for from our local businesses. We’re excited to see how Tilson will continue to grow and impact the city with this expansion.”
