Company Profile

The heritage of Empower Retirement dates back more than a century.

The company handpicked the Metro Denver area in the 1970s to serve as its U.S. headquarters. Since then, the company has grown to a team of 5,800 employees worldwide, administering over $444 billion in assets.

Empower is now the nation’s second-largest 401(k) provider serving over 30,000 plan sponsors and 8 million individuals. With more than 2,600 team members in Colorado, it’s no surprise the company has created a work environment that attracts innovative, talented individuals.

Located 20 minutes from downtown Denver, Empower’s office in Greenwood Village is packed with amenities— including a free, onsite gym that’s staffed with fitness experts, medical clinic, cafeteria, convenience store, dry cleaner, and bank. Employees also enjoy a prime Denver Tech Center location, stunning views of the Rocky Mountains, proximity to a number of parks—including Cherry Creek State Park—and a light rail station within walking distance.

Drawing from talent in Metro Denver and beyond, Empower continues to add to its team. With career paths spanning retirement and investment services, it fosters a community of innovative and collaborative individuals who bring a strong work ethic and a commitment to exceeding customers’ expectations in everything they do.
