Lubbock, TX, USA, Oct, 2017 -- Convergys will close its Lubbock location in February.
The call center’s office building at 3701 W. Loop 289 was put on the market for sale or lease earlier this month. The 68,134-square-foot building currently houses 400 employees.
Brooke Beiting, a media relations specialist for Convergys, wrote in an email that one of two companies that currently outsources customer relations to the Lubbock location will end its work from the site in November.

She stated the second client handles predominantly seasonal health care work, which ends in January.
"With our lease expiring in February, Convergys has made the difficult decision to exit the Lubbock market," Beiting wrote in an email.
The work previously done at the location will be consolidated and reassigned to other Convergys locations in the U.S.
Employees have been notified of the closure. Beiting said the company offers work-from-home positions that Lubbock employees have been encouraged to apply for.
