The initial projection estimated 1,000 employees by the year 2018, but rapid growth in the services portfolio, the implementation of an internal promotion program and the hiring of many multilingual employees, accelerated the goal.
Equifax Inc. announced the opening of its second shared services center in Costa Rica. With this new site, the company expects to grow to 1,000 total employees by the end of 2017. The company, which has been operating in Costa Rica since 1995, is continuing to deliver on its operations expansion plan, which was launched in 2015 with the creation of 400 new jobs. Due to significant growth and the diversification of its services in areas such as finance, procurement and accounting, in addition to strengthening the branches of information technology, information security and business operations, Equifax continues to recognize further investment in its centers, employees and the local Costa Rican economy.
The new two-story building, which is approximately 4,400 square meters, is located in the Metro Free Zone in Barreal de Heredia, and represents a US$ 4.5 million investment for Equifax.
The inauguration was attended by the President of the Republic of Costa Rica Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera, the Minister of Foreign Trade, Alexander Mora, CINDE Managing Director, Jorge Sequeira and senior executives from Equifax.
