Conduent wins $1B contract; to hire 1K globally

Florham Park-based digital services company Conduent Inc. has won a three-year, $1 billion contract with a Fortune 50 company, it announced Monday, and will hire 1,000 people globally to help fulfill the pact.

The company, which spun off from Xerox last year, is renewing a pact with the undisclosed American company, it said in a news release.

“Platform-driven digital interactions is a source of competitive advantage in the marketplace, driving positive purchasing power and brand loyalty,” Christine Landry, group CEO, Consumer & Industrials, said in a prepared statement. “This award demonstrates that digital experiences are a powerful and must-have differentiator. Our platform portfolio, technology expertise and ability to understand customer needs sets us apart from the competition with this Fortune 50 brand.”

Conduent said it will add jobs through a process called Accushoring, which enables it to use talent anywhere in the world and leverage workers from locations with the best balance of skills, availability and costs.

A spokesman declined to elaborate on the location of the jobs, including whether any would be located in New Jersey.
