Cbiz Inc. and Mayer Hoffman McCann PC will move their headquarters and 450 employees across the state line from Leawood, Kan., to the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Mo., next summer. The move by the business services firm will trigger financial incentives from Missouri, said Richard Mills, Cbiz Financial Services’ chief operating officer. The Missouri Department of Economic Development said Cbiz could access as much as $25.4 million in incentives under the Missouri Works program by meeting “strict job creation and investment criteria.”
