Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) (listed in BSE & NSE), a digital-led CX transformation leader for the world’s most admired brands, today announced the opening of a new multilingual customer experience (CX) hub in Colombia to support customers with English, Spanish, and Portuguese CX requirements. Located in Barranquilla on the northern coast of the country, the new modern contact centre location opens several permanent leadership and frontline positions to help support customers through the holiday season and beyond.
HGS expects to hire over 150 employees locally across voice and non-voice multilingual service roles as well as corporate support functions by January 2023, and ramp up going forward. The HGS Colombia CX hub will support clients in the logistics and consumer industries and add other clients subsequently.
“Colombia has been growing steadily as an attractive nearshore destination for CX services, and we are delighted to establish presence here. Our industry demands skills, innovation, and agility, attributes that define the highly educated talent available in this region. We believe the new hub in Barranquilla will act as a catalyst to significantly scale our CX capabilities for our expanding multilingual client base globally,” said Partha DeSarkar, Group Chief Executive Officer of Hinduja Global Solutions.
