Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has announced what he describes as more great news for job seekers in the South of Saint Lucia.
In a post Thursday on his official Facebook page, Chastanet disclosed that itelbpo in partnership with Invest Saint Lucia is developing a 20,000 sq ft factory shell located in the Hewanorra Free Zone in Vieux-Fort, Saint Lucia, which will house more than 300 employees in the global services sector.
According to the PM, it is a strategic move aimed at expanding its geographical footprint, ultimately diversifying its workforce and further enriching its global talent pool as the company pushes aggressively towards its 5-year goal of 5,000 new seats in its contact centre operations.
He stated that itelbpo & Invest Saint Lucia have broken ground and the new site is set to open on April 1, 2020.
“Founded in 2012 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, itelbpo is now a global business, and the region’s largest home-grown business process outsourcer offering end-to-end customer experience management solutions. With 5 facilities in 4 countries and a robust network of home-based experts, they have a balanced delivery model that offers agile and customized voice, non-voice and digitally enabled solutions that can adapt to the demands of an ever changing marketplace,” it was explained.
