MILWAUKEE, June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- GalaxE.Solutions, an IT services company, in partnership with Northwestern Mutual, has announced the launch of "Outsource to Milwaukee," which will create hundreds of new tech jobs in the city of Milwaukee. GalaxE is in the process of hiring an initial 300 team members while selecting office space for an innovation center that will be located in the downtown area.
GalaxE.Solutions recognizes Milwaukee is an ideal city for expanding its "Outsource to America" initiative, which is poised to bring outsourced IT jobs back to the United States. Milwaukee is the third city in the Outsource to America program, joining Hartford, CT and Detroit, MI. GalaxE is focused on expanding the number of U.S.-based IT hubs by bringing outsourced jobs back to the United States. GalaxE's IT program appeals to U.S. companies because it can offer workforce resilience at a price point that is competitive with offshore services.
"Milwaukee is a tremendous city to live and work, and its access to talent, top academic institutions and tremendous opportunities for collaboration makes it an outstanding location for our next investment," said Tim Bryan, CEO, GalaxE.Solutions. "In the post COVID-19 world, overseas work-from-home challenges with infrastructure, security and compliance are creating critical problems for U.S. companies that rely on technology to do business. Our model brings much of that work and jobs back to the U.S. using domestic teams and transformational technology to provide greater accuracy and efficiencies for a competitive alternative to outsourcing abroad."
The Outsource program focuses on workforce and community development, cultivating jobs, job training and creating economic opportunities that target displaced populations. This is accomplished through the development of public-private partnerships with local and state government, alignment with academic institutions and collaboration with community leadership.
"GalaxE shares our commitment to upskilling local talent to fill the critical tech job needs in the Milwaukee region," said Neal Sample, chief information officer, Northwestern Mutual. "GalaxE's Outsource initiative has proven success in Detroit and Hartford in creating job growth, especially for those in underserved communities. Outsource to Milwaukee will allow us to build a more inclusive economy, advancing and creating new job opportunities during this unprecedented time."
