Florida Blue CEO Pat Geraghty spoke during a JAXUSA Partnership webinar on Sept. 17.

Florida Blue President and CEO Pat Geraghty said it is hard to say what the health insurer’s 100-acre Deerwood office campus will look like in the future, but he and his team are looking at creative ways to use the space.

“I happen to be of the opinion that we’re not going to be remaining completely remote and we’re not going back to where we were just prior to this pandemic,” Geraghty told the virtual JAXUSA Partnership luncheon Sept. 17, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

“I think we’re going to find a spot in the middle.”

JAXUSA President Aundra Wallace led the fireside-chat style conversation with Geraghty. JAXUSA is the economic development division of JAX Chamber.

Geraghty said he sees some employees working a hybrid schedule, with some days in the office and the rest working from home. Others would have the option to work fully remotely. 

The leftover space created by remote workers may need to be reconfigured.

“Do we have too much space, do we want to share space? We have to think very creatively about what the right balance for us as an employer,” Geraghty said.
