Caribbean Export recognized Qualfon, a business process outsourcing (BPO) firm, as BPO Investor of the Year at the recent Outsource to the Caribbean Conference 2019. The award recognizes organizations that have made contributions to promote expansion and investment in the Caribbean regions.

The country’s native English-speaking population and competitively priced services are considered very important to the global outsourcing industry. The firm has been a BPO provider in Guyana since 2005 and is the country’s largest private employer. Margaret Rose, regional director of Site Selection Magazine and expert panel judge, said Qualfon has been a major contributor to growth, job creation, and stability in Guyana. Christine Morris, group president of Qualfon, said the company will continue its growth in the country.
