Roche to add 50 HR employees in Indianapolis

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Swiss health care giant Roche Holding AG has selected its diagnostics division in Indianapolis as the site for a new North America human resources center, a move that will add 50 employees to its local operations.

Officials for Roche Diagnostics and the city announced plans for the new North America Human Resources Shared Services Center on Friday morning.

The center will provide HR services for all of Roche's North American diagnostics and pharmaceutical operations, including subsidiary Genentech, representing about 23,000 employees in total.

Local economic development groups Develop Indy and Indy Partnership provided site-selection assistance to Roche.

"After considering multiple locations, Roche made the strategic choice to locate their new shared services center in Indianapolis in part because of our quality work force and low cost of doing business," Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said in a prepared statement.

The new center will provide a range of HR services, such as payroll and benefits administration, and will support two North America employee call centers, one in San Francisco for Roche's pharmaceutical division and one in Indianapolis for diagnostics. It will also provide support to some Roche operations in Iceland and Singapore.

About 4,200 employees report to the local division of Roche, but many of them are field sales representatives who work in other markets. About 2,900 employees actually work in the Indianapolis area.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
