HGS Jamaica 10 year anniversary logo

HGS launched its first nearshore Jamaica site in Kingston with a banking client and about 55 employees in 2012. This year, having grown to 1700+ employees with renowned clients across six industries, the always-enthusiastic HGS Jamaica team celebrates a significant milestone that has not yet been achieved by many international outsourcers operating in this geography.

“To see and participate in HGS Jamaica’s growth for 10 years is both inspiring and satisfying. The energy and passion that the Jamaica team brings to their work, and the kind of dedication that they’ve consistently shown, I’m incredibly proud of it and inspired by it every day. I look forward to many more glorious years with this forward-looking, uplifting team.”

— Narasimha Murthy, President, HGS Americas

“The 10-year mark is crucial and sets the precedent for the next leg of professional growth. HGS has emerged as one of the best places to work in Jamaica’s fast-growing BPM industry and continues to attract top talent. We have been ranked the best BPO and 7th Best Employer for FY2021, and the credit goes to the leadership and people that represent HGS in Jamaica. I am sure they are poised for more growth and success, and to chart out another memorable decade in HGS history.”

— Giridhar G V, Executive Vice President, Global HR Head, HGS

What the experts are saying

“According to U.S. contact center decision-makers, Jamaica rose to become the most favored American nearshore location…. Jamaica has graduated from a promising nearshore hub into a beachhead for outsourcers seeking to expand service delivery into the larger English-speaking world….

— Sean Goforth, Ryan Strategic Advisory, NEARSHORE 2021: A New Service Delivery Paradigm, July 2021

Jamaica’s performance among all the HGS locations is a testament to the strength and resilience of the Jamaican worker, but also the wider Global Services Sector (GSS). The fact that we were able to do so well also shows the enormous potential to be tapped in the GSS, and we will continue to support this sector, which is already playing a major role in further developing Jamaica.”

— JAMPRO GSS Programme Director Marjorie Straw
