     TTEC to expand in Oklahoma City, create 350 jobs

          Staff reports, Oklahoman
          Published: Sat, July 13, 2019 5:00 AM

Denver-based insurance and technology company TTEC Holdings Inc. will open a Humanify Customer Engagement Center in Oklahoma City, where the company will employ up to 350 people, officials said Friday.

"Oklahoma City’s talented labor force provided an excellent market opportunity to create a new Humanify Customer Engagement Center,” Martin DeGhetto, TTEC's chief operating officer, said in a statement. “We look forward to hiring individuals who are compassionate and service-minded, including those from the many military families and veterans who call Oklahoma City home."

TTEC officials are looking to hire licensed property and casualty claims adjusters and support positions. The company also offers a College of Insurance training program to help people receive an insurance license and prepare to become an insurance adjuster.

TTEC officials credited the decision to expand in Oklahoma City in part because of a collaborative effort by the Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City, Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, City of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Department of Commerce and Oklahoma Works.

"We are proud that another technology and services company has chosen Oklahoma for its latest operation," Sean Kouplen, Oklahoma Secretary of Commerce and Workforce Development, said in a statement. "Our business climate, skilled workforce, workforce training and collaborative environment continue to make an impact on companies looking to expand. We appreciate TTEC for choosing Oklahoma and look forward to seeing the company succeed in our state."

The facility will be at an existing technology park at 7725 W Reno Ave.

“We are very excited to welcome TTEC to Oklahoma City,” Roy H. Williams, CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, said in a statement. “They are recognized as a leader in their industry, and the outstanding talent pool we have in Oklahoma City was a big factor in their decision to expand here. They are a company that has a great reputation with community involvement, and we are excited to watch them grow in Oklahoma City.”
