TeleTech will create at least 350 new jobs at a new customer experience center in Morrilton, AR this summer.
The Conway County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) worked with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC) in attracting TeleTech, assisting in the company’s location decision, and facilitating the mechanics of opening the facility.
TeleTech’s Morrilton location will be in the Riverland Shopping Center. The company has an existing customer experience center in Sherwood, AR, in the Wildwood Centre & Medical Tower. The Morrilton location will serve as a satellite and extension of the current facility, supporting customer experiences for TeleTech’s healthcare clients.
“It cannot be underestimated the impact these 350 positions will have on the economy in Morrilton and surrounding area,” said Mike Preston, AEDC executive director. “This lays the groundwork for additional economic growth and is a testament to the strength and reputation of the local workforce. Thanks to TeleTech for continuing to invest in Arkansas.”
“The city of Morrilton welcomes TeleTech, a global company that represents the highest level of quality,” said Allen Lipsmeyer, mayor of Morrilton. “Jobs create hope. Hope is the driver for change and change is what we have seen in the last 2 1/2 years. The city council and I have laid the groundwork for change by investing $4.5 million dollars in various areas around town. This has caused an attitude change in our great town and allowed over $200 million in quality projects to flourish. With our latest announcement of a 150 to 160-lot subdivision, things are moving in the right direction. I want to again thank and welcome TeleTech to Morrilton. They will be a great corporate partner.”
TeleTech Holdings, Inc. is a global provider of customer experience, engagement and growth solutions delivered through a proprietary end-to-end customer engagement as a service offering. The company has over 48,000 employees worldwide.
