American BPO and IT services provider DXC Technology has announced that it will hire 1,200 workers for its office in Conway, Arkansas, as it gears up to increase its capacity to serve Medicaid programs in 30 states.

In return for the jobs created for the local residents, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission will give cash rebates to the company.
“A large part of the mission of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and this administration has been to recruit high-paying, high-tech jobs to the state, and we’re thrilled to see DXC expand in Conway,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson.
DXC has already employed 450 people in the Conway facility, the new jobs will be added over the next four years.
“We have a great team in Conway, and our expansion here will create new job and career opportunities, strengthen our educational partnerships, and contribute to the area’s growth economically and as a center of innovation,” said Andrea Fiumicelli, a senior executive of DXC.
