CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — The Results Companies, a company that provides outsourcing services to businesses, plans to expand its operations in Virginia with a new call center in Chesterfield County. 

The announcement, made by Governor Ralph Northam’s office on Monday, includes a $1.5 million investment and the promise to create 600 new jobs. 

The Results Companies, which already has a call center in Richmond, has more than 1,300 full-time employees in Virginia. 

The success of our corporate partners is vital to Virginia’s economic strength, and The Results Companies’ continued growth is a prime example of what can be achieved in the Commonwealth. 

With client engagement centers throughout South and Central Virginia, The Results Companies is a respected major employer in the Commonwealth, and we thank the company for its decision to expand and reinvest in Chesterfield County. To support this significant expansion, the company will also benefit from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which remains one of our strongest and most effective workforce development tools.”

Chesterfield County and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, competing against New Mexico for the investment, worked together to ensure that the company chose Virginia for the new call center and jobs.

With the support of the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), The Results Companies’ project will enjoy consultative services and funding for the creation of new jobs. VJIP will also reduce the human resource costs for the new project. 

The company is also eligible to receive a Major Business Facility Job Tax Credit for the jobs being created.

“The Results Companies is thrilled to bring approximately 600 new career opportunities to the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said The Results Companies Vice President of Human Resources Andrea Maizes.

“We believe that Midlothian is the right place to help us grow our company. The incentive programs will strengthen our competitive positioning within the industry while allowing us to join a dynamic community. Chesterfield County also provides strong talent options through their ongoing progressive growth and labor force, as well as their community partnerships.”
