Convergys Adding Staff to North Carolina Contact Center

February 25, 2013

One of the ways you can tell that a company is having some real success, no matter what sector of the business world they operate in, is whether or not they are able to successfully operate their contact centers. Businesses that see an importance in turning contact centers into a revenue producing entity are the businesses that tend to stick around at the front of the crowd the longest. Convergys recognizes the possibility of turning a contact center into something that can help their bottom line.

Convergys (News - Alert) recently announced that while they won’t be opening a new call center, they will be adding to the staff members who are already working at their Charlotte, North Carolina center. In all, the Cincinnati based company will be adding as many as 1,600 employees to that call center. To make room for the influx of employees, the company will also be spending about $1.8 million to expand the center.

Convergys has clients that work in a number of different tech sectors. Just last week, the company put out a “casting call” for employees to work at its Charlotte center for a major cable and Internet provider.  In all, the company boasts about 3,000 employees throughout North Carolina.

In order to staff up, Convergys will be holding a job fair in the near future. The company is mainly looking for entry level employees who can help in the sales support arena using phone, e-mail and online contact forms. There could be some management positions to come out of this round of hiring.

Mecklenburg County, where Charlotte is located, has had a long history of employment through contact centers. County officials estimate as many as 13,000 people are employed at 50 different contact centers located throughout the county.

Stalag Call Center?

I started thinking about Stalag's a few weeks ago when I checked into a hotel with my wife. I pointed out a large call center across the street and my wife asked, "How do you know it is a call center? I don't see any signs saying that!" Her question hit me like a Mack truck. How did I know it was a call center? Were there any real clues or was I just clairvoyant? [ Read More ]
