The 7,000 square-foot facility in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, becomes the company’s fourth in the country. The new employees will join the more than 2,000 that Convergys employs in three centers in Heredia and San Jose.

Three years after entering the country, the company has grown into one of Costa Rica’s largest service-sector employers. Costa Rica President Laura Chinchilla attended a launch event for the new center.

“The employment opportunities that Convergys adds to this sector have been very important and marked by the offering of hundreds of job opportunities with stable income, good salaries and interesting prospects for personal and professional growth to Costa Ricans,” Chinchilla said in a Convergys news release.

With 75,000 employees, Convergys operates call centers throughout the world.
