REXBURG — Ethics and compliance software and services company NAVEX

Global@ today announced that it will expand its operations in Rexburg, Idaho, and will add at least 80 more jobs to meet the demands of the company’s rapidly growing business and expanding global customer base.

The company made the announcement during a press conference held on Wednesday at Hemming Village.

NAVEX Global has begun recruiting for the contact center in Rexburg and is currently accepting job applications. The final employment number will depend on the number of employees who apply for part-time positions. Training for new employees will begin in mid-May. The contact center will begin operations in early June.

“NAVEX Global’s presence in this community began in 2013 with the acquisition of PolicyTech, a high growth software company founded here in Rexburg,” said Bob Conlin, NAVEX Global president and CEO. “The employees we gained through that acquisition have contributed significantly to our growth and culture. We have been looking for an opportunity to expand operations in this area for some time.”

Among the several positive aspects of the Rexburg location is the concentration of potential job

applicants with multilingual skills, in part due to the proximity of BYU-Idaho. NAVEX Global’s

 international business growth has accelerated in recent years, necessitating a commensurate expansion in multilingual contact center staffing.

“It is with great excitement, but not surprise, that the City of Rexburg announces the expansion of NAVEX Global in our community,” said Rexburg Mayor Jerry L. Merrill. “NAVEX Global, a very forward-thinking company, joins the growing number of businesses that recognize Rexburg as a center of business development due to the synergy between the city and the university to offer a low-cost center for doing business with a large, highly skilled workforce. Rexburg is home to Brigham Young University-Idaho, the largest university in the state.

“Together with our community partners, we welcome NAVEX Global and hope to provide them with a vibrant, thriving talent pool that will continue to drive their business growth and strengthen Rexburg’s business sector.”
