At a time when companies are downsizing and closing locations, Prudential Financial Inc. is doing the opposite. Its group insurance business is opening a disability management services office in Scottsdale, Ariz., and will hire 50 additional employees.

The office expands the company’s operations for both absence management and short-term disability services, and is expected to be operational by January 2010, according to Lori High, president of Prudential’s Group Insurance Business.

“Opening this office in the West highlights our commitment to our disability product and service offering—and our desire to enhance the service we offer to our Midwest and West Coast customers,” she says. “Scottsdale offers a talented pool of people well suited to the needs of our growing disability operation.”

This expansion is the result of Prudential’s growing presence in the disability marketplace, the company says. The office will be co-located with Prudential Real Estate and Relocation Services. The company currently has disability management offices in Portland, Maine and Roseland, N.J.
