San José, Costa Rica. January 19, 2023. Bill Gosling Outsourcing (BGO), a Canadian company that provides services to the industries of Fintech, banking/financial institutions, e-commerce, retail, automotive, and public services, is preparing for growth in Costa Rica.

BGO, which first arrived in the country in 2019, recognizes that Costa Rica’s political and economic stability, as well as the country’s human talent, has propelled the company’s development. Just this past December, BGO reached 1,000 employees at its operations in Costa Rica.

“Costa Rica has been a great strategic partner for us! Their highly educated workforce and ready English language skills are key factors in helping us serve our clients. In addition, legal certainty and the Free Trade Zone regime proved advantageous to select the country from among our growth plans and in this way, create more job options for Costa Ricans,” commented Kenny Johnston, President of Bill Gosling Outsourcing.

Manuel Tovar, the Minister of Foreign Trade, stated: “Costa Rica is a dynamic destination for corporate and business services. From here, nearly 100 different processes are offered every day, in more than 12 languages, for [delivery] around the world. That's why today, we celebrate Bill Gosling Outsourcing's (BGO) news, which will create 300 new quality jobs that will add to the global economy. We continue working to be an ideal location for companies looking to optimize their corporate structure and adopt digital transformation.”

In addition to Costa Rica, BGO has operations in the U.S., UK, Canada, the Philippines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Jorge Sequeira, the Managing Director of CINDE, commented: "BGO's growth is based on their confidence in the capacity of Costa Rican talent, as well as the country’s proven experience in the service sector, allowing the company to operate 24 lines of business from Costa Rica for its clients in the United States and Canada. We hope to continue acting as a strategic ally for BGO and that the company’s development will boost Costa Rica's exports in terms of knowledge-based services, which in the third quarter of last year were $5.4 billion – a growth of 14.3 % over the same period in 2021, which serves to highlight the sector’s dynamism”.
