IOWA CITY, Iowa, February 2, 2018 (PressRelease.com) – Anthony Marlowe, the CEO of Mass Markets, the Iowa-based, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) contact center and Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS) provider, announced that his company would work with the 178 employees impacted by the Convergys site closure, find them positions at its nearby Dakota Dunes, South Dakota, contact center and endeavor to match their current level of pay.
Convergys announced on Jan. 30 that it was providing 60-days’ notice to 178 Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, employees of the site closure per the Federal WARN Act and that April 14 would be the final day of operation for the call center. “While we have never been put in this position, we know the decision to close must have been a difficult one. We understand the impact this has on the Siouxland community, Convergys’ employees and their families,” said Mass Markets CEO Anthony Marlowe. “We hope to work with Convergys leadership to help find a place at Mass Markets for some or all of the 178 employees displaced by the closure. This is a great opportunity to be able to move our business forward while also doing something that is good for our community.”
Mass Markets, headquartered in Iowa City, Iowa, has been a longstanding employer in the Siouxland area and is in the process of expanding the workforce in many of its contact centers, including the Dakota Dunes location. “We have several large Fortune 500 telesales, logistics and customer service clients that we are supporting in the Dakota Dunes facility and welcome the opportunity to grow our team and capabilities with an experienced, talented and highly skilled workforce. Convergys’ hiring and training practices are some of the best in the Business Process Outsourcing industry and we would be lucky to have 1 or 178 of their staff join our growing team,” Anthony stated.

Convergys’ hiring and training practices are some of the best in the Business Process Outsourcing industry, and we would be lucky to have 1 or 178 of their staff join our growing team.
