Picture this: you start your day in Nashville, “Music City”, a city formerly known solely for its Country music scene, but now has the spotlight shining brighter than ever, thanks to the city’s rapid growth. Still, it holds on to its deep southern hospitality roots, which are never buried too deeply. You make your way to one of many unique coffee shops and see several faces you know, having a friendly chat. Those that you aren’t familiar with still smile and wish you a great day. You arrive at work in the heart of downtown, where your desk is in a bright, collaborative, open environment. After work, you can head to dinner, have a drink, hear live music, play in your kickball league, peruse several farmers markets or an art gallery, see a Broadway musical, or catch a concert at the outdoor amphitheater.
As a Nashville resident, working in our downtown office, which we call “Ragland”, you will be close to these opportunities daily. Nashville has been a repeat headline in national publications recently, as it welcomes over 80 new residents daily. In fact, this Middle Tennessee city has showed the healthiest employment growth since the crash of 2008, when compared to all other large metropolises (12th & Broad). This can be partially attributed to the Middle Tennessee city’s 23% growth rate in high-tech jobs from 2012 to 2014 (CBRE).
Asurion’s five-story Ragland office opened as our downtown base in 2012, after being restored from a nightclub to its original 1930s brick façade. To date, over 500 employees call it home, and we expect they will for many years to come, thanks to the growth of Asurion’s careers in the tech space.
Come on a tour with us through Ragland and learn what it’s like to be an employee here.
