A worker’s compensation insurance provider has opened a new headquarters in central Omaha.
Omaha National officially opened Wednesday at an office near 90th Street and West Dodge Road.
The company moved from a space that was about half the size of the new digs after it outgrew it, said Reagan Pufall, president and CEO of Omaha National.
“The main motivation for finding a new location was to accommodate the growth we’ve achieved,” he said. “We plan to continue to grow in the future.”
Omaha National was founded in 2016 with seven employees. The company now employs around 200 people.
The new 52,000 square foot office can accommodate up to 300 employees.
The space includes private workspaces for each employee as well as additional spaces for collaboration. A larger break room and common areas will allow employees to socialize.
Omaha National occupies the third floor of the office building. The space is laid out in an X shape, Pufall said. This gives it more natural light, as does the building’s central atrium.

The combination of a “light and airy setting and the ability for everyone to work together on the same floor in a central location” was a huge draw, Pufall said.
Most employees work full-time from the office or work a hybrid schedule, three days a week.
Other office perks include free snacks and fruit daily and regular visits from local food trucks.
Omaha National operates in 15 states, with its main market in California, Pufall said. Around 85% of the company’s activity is located there.
But there was no question, Pufall said, of being based in Omaha.
“Ultimately,” he said, “we will be a national workers’ compensation insurance provider operating out of our office in Omaha. Of all the decisions we had to make to start this business, the easiest decision was to locate in Omaha. It’s a great city to run a business.
