No matter where you sit on the issue of “offshoring U.S. jobs”, you will find the remarks by Capgemini vice president of BPO services, Robbie Brillhart, thought provoking in a new Nearshore Americas video we just released. [Click here]
Robbie was very willing to take this controversial issue head on – emphasizing that he is proud that Capgemini can provide employment for hundreds of people in Guatemala. On the issue of outsourcing jobs, he says: “It’s not the part about moving the jobs away -it’s an engine about creating new opportunities in other countries and being a part of a process of evolution. Where it’s the right job in the right place – that’s where we’ll put that job.”
“I get chills just thinking about what we’re doing as an industry in countries like Guatemala” – Brillhart
Robbie makes some very good points and we like his willingness to talk openly about a topic that many Nearshore corporate customers wouldn’t dare touch. We’ll continue to look for more executives in our Nearshore community to speak their minds on this critical issue.
