The Romanian unit of business process outsourcing company Computer Generated Solutions (CGS) said on Wednesday it will hire 450 people to cope with increasing demand for support services amid the coronavirus pandemic.The new employees will work from home and will support projects already in progress, as well as new ones added in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, CGS Romania said in a press release.
Many businesses moved operations online, while a large number of companies have support centers in Asia, which was strongly affected by the pandemic situation. This situation led to a growing need for outsourcing services, CGS Romania country manager Vladimir Sterescu said.
Most new projects come from clients who had outsourcing contracts or support centers in the Philippines, India or North-West Africa.
Currently, 80% of all 4,000 CGS Romania employees are working from home.
U.S.-based company CGS has been present on the Romanian market since 2006. It provides services in 18 languages, with support centers - in Bucharest, Brasov, Sibiu, Targu-Jiu, Miercurea-Ciuc, Galati and Constanta.
CGS was founded in 1984 in New York and currently employs over 7,500 across North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
