Ogden, UT, USA, March 28, 2017 -- After many years in Ogden, Convergys is consolidating its Utah call centers and will shutter its campus next to the Ogden-Hinckley Airport the last week of May.
The sign hovering above its four-building campus at 1400 W. 4000 South reads "Fond memories since 1979," and a notice on the first building says "Recruiting is closed, Convergys in Ogden will close May 26th."
A March 21 email from Convergys Corporate Communications Director Ed Loyd said that up to 209 workers could be affected by the Ogden closure.
"We are consolidating remaining work to our Salt Lake City location. Employees will have the opportunity to apply for work at home programs or transfer to another Convergys location," Loyd said by email, adding that Convergys sites in Salt Lake City and Logan will continue to operate with more than 1,000 team members.
The Herald Extra and Iron County Today reported that Convergys will also shut down its Orem and Cedar City facilities at the same time, affecting up to 130 employees in Orem and 77 in Cedar City. In February, the company also announced call center/office closures in Tennessee and Missouri.
