Jamaica is the number one BPO location in the English Speaking Caribbean, supporting several US multinational providers, and captives in a sector consisting of 60 firms and over 25,000 employees.
The sector is supported by the highest level of Government, where it is among the prioritized economic group to facilitate the national growth agenda. The hub of the sector is in the western part of the island, but there is a growing cluster of operators in the south eastern end.
The sector is enabled by a very robust telecommunications network, several tertiary institutions providing competitive talent and a healthy mix of incentives under the Special Economic Zone.
Since 2012, the Business Process Industry Association of Jamaica (BPIAJ) has been providing support to the cluster by ensuring a reliable and sustainable enabling ecosystem to allow the sector to adapt and thrive in this dynamic global environment.
