Noblesville-based RYZE Claim Solutions says it is providing a new “living wage” to its nationwide workforce. The company says its new starting wage will be $16 per hour, which is more than double the current federal and state minimum wages of $7.25 an hour.
Chief Executive Officer Tony Grippa says the increase is part of the company’s efforts to maintain a successful return in top-quality work to clients, as well as employee satisfaction.
“As the nation’s fastest-growing claims company, we will continue to invest in our employees through competitive wages, through training for long-term career development, and by offering industry-leading benefits so that we can attract and retain only the best talent,” Grippa said.
In Florida, where RYZE also has offices, the company says its minimum wage is currently $10 an hour with a scheduled increase to $11 at the end of September.
