Conduent Incorporated Plans Tech Hub in Morrisville, North Carolina
The Global Technology and Innovation Campus is expected to bring 200 full-time jobs to the region. The new facility is slated to open in March, with hiring starting next year.
"As a technology-led business that serves Fortune 500 companies and government entities around the world, being a part of this dynamic area with such a storied history in innovation is the right move for our clients and our people," said Ashok Vemuri, CEO of Conduent.
"The Research Triangle will provide access to a new professional labor market focused on technology, innovation and research. We are honored to have the support of Governor Cooper to bring even more future-looking jobs to the great state of North Carolina,” Vemuri added.
As an incentive, Conduent will receive state-sponsored job growth and development incentives totaling approximately $2.1 million, including the Job Development Investment Grant and North Carolina Community College System's Customized Training Value incentive. These performance-based programs will help Conduent expand more efficiently, and hire and train its new employees more strategically.
"North Carolina offers a deep pool of talented workers that attracts global technology companies," said Governor Roy Cooper. "Conduent's decision to select the Research Triangle is the latest example of how investing in a highly-skilled, educated workforce pays off for North Carolina."
Conduent has technology and innovation hubs in India, with lab facilities there developing the latest technology in mobile, IoT, human computer interaction, machine learning, text and multimedia analytics. The India labs mission is to drive transformational innovations for Conduent, Conduent clients and the world in areas of transportation, healthcare, public safety solutions, human resources, process automation and operational excellence.
