The second-largest city in Columbia, Medellin, has become home to TaskUs, Inc. (Nasdaq: TASK), a leading provider of outsourced digital services and next-generation consumer experiences to the world's most inventive organizations.
The Medellin location, whose completion is anticipated for September 2023, improves TaskUs' operational capabilities in Latin America.
The city of Medellin, also known as the "land of eternal spring" due to its extraordinary year-round warmth, has a strong technical infrastructure, a skilled workforce, and a customer-focused culture.
Having a prime location in the middle of the city, "The Gallery" provides easy access to coworkers via bus and metro.
By mixing aspects of graffiti and bringing the creative energy of the city to life, the Gallery redefines conventional workspaces by drawing inspiration from Medellin's lively hip-hop culture, urban rhythm, and free-style expression.
The Medellin site expands TaskUs' presence in Colombia, which already has a site called "the Arena" in Cali, which was established in November 2021 and developed so quickly that more seating capacity was added the previous year. Some of the greatest companies in international healthcare, e-commerce, and financial services are among TaskUs' clients in Colombia.
Through its people-first attitude, employee benefits, and other advantages, TaskUs has emerged as a significant, disruptive force in the business process outsourcing market both internationally and in Colombia. All TaskUs employees in Colombia, regardless of status, have access to medica prepagada, dental plans, and life insurance—all with 100% coverage—as part of the company's people-focused strategy. Additionally, each employee may name up to two beneficiaries who will each get up to 50% of the same benefits.
Pablo Gonzalez, vice president of operations in Medellin, said, "We are excited to start this exciting initiative and introduce our great customer service services to the dynamic city of Medellin. "Medellin is the ideal site for our expansion because of its vibrant culture, hospitable people, and rich cultural heritage.
We can't wait to work with the neighborhood, appreciate their distinct culture, and support the city's economic development.
The COO of TaskUs, Stephan Daoust, said, "Colombia is one of our fastest growing regions, and we are quickly adding capacity to meet the demand." Pablo Gonzalez has joined us to lead our new site in Medellin, and we couldn't be happier about it.
