The new subsidiary, Activus Connect PR, specializes in work-from-home customer experience delivery and has launched with 40 remote Puerto Rican Ambassadors, supporting North American clients in the healthcare, retail, insurance, and government services industries. Before the end of 2020, Activus Connect plans to hire an additional 60 Ambassadors to serve the telecommunications, travel and leisure, and food and beverage sectors.
Puerto Rico has long been a premier “CX-as-a-service” destination for mega industries such as travel and leisure, medical, government services, and others, due to its strong cultural alignment to the United States and its pool of well-educated, bilingual human resources. Remote working, however, is an entirely new concept for the island.
“The activities of companies like Activus Connect in Puerto Rico showcase the island’s role as a hub of innovation for a variety of sectors. Our support system, which goes far beyond incentives and other benefits, opens the door to visionary enterprises looking to make inroads in relevant and emerging fields like remote work endeavors. The current global situation has brought this sector to the forefront of the business world, and we are proud that Puerto Rico has been singled out as fertile ground for growth,” said Rodrick Miller, CEO of Invest Puerto Rico, the island’s public-private partnership for economic development.
In 2019, Activus Connect became the first company to beta test the concept of geographically dispersed contractors and remote working on the island, which are now being converted into full W2 employees with the launch of Activus Connect PR.
Activus Connect’s SmartVirtual™ model combines technological innovation with strategic recruitment practices to offer skilled Puerto Rican professionals an attractive and unique career opportunity in remote customer experience delivery — the company’s average annual compensation is US$30,000, 32% greater than the median household income in the country.
