Montego Bay BPO Company Fires Over 100 Employees
At least 100 employees at the business processing outsourcing (BPO) company, Vista Print (Jamaica Limited), were left seeking a job on Tuesday as they received notifications telling them not to report for work the next day. The messages came in light of a meeting with the company’s directors, who flew in from abroad.
According to the Jamaica Gleaner, staff cutbacks came from various departments in the company. While the company is known for taking extreme actions against its employees without prior notice, it was reported that the measures came as a shock.
A representative of the company, however, reported that the choice to relieve so many people of their jobs was a very hard decision, but the company still managed to retain a thousand people at the Montego Bay location.

Additionally, the representative acknowledged that the employees who were made redundant had contributed greatly to the success of the company and reassured them that they would continue to support them through this process. Jamaica was reportedly not the only location to lose a large number of its workers. The company fired a total of 500 employees from various other countries.
