The California, USA-headquartered firm, Workday, is opening operations in the Cariari Corporate Center in Heredia Province as part of its global location development strategy. 

In Costa Rica, the firm will manage its operations, customer experience, and finance functions to support its global customers. 

The company expects to hire 100 new employees in areas such as operations, finance, media production and IT among others.  Those interested in joining the company should visit the firm career's website.

The firm offers medical, dental, and vision benefits, as well as life insurance, financial planning, a wellness subsidy, a mental and emotional health program, paid parental leave, paid time off, paid holidays, and community volunteering, among others.

"We’re excited to open up an office in Costa Rica, which we chose because of its incredible access to talent and proximity to support Workday's global operation," said Jancy Castro, Senior Director of Finance and Costa Rica Site Lead at Workday. “As our customer base continues to grow, there is a greater need to provide support to those organizations and internal teams. Through our operations in Costa Rica, we look forward to delivering added value to our customers and employees, as well as contributing to the country's economic growth and development.” 

Workday counts with offices across North America, Europe and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.  

Even though new businesses are creating jobs in Costa Rica, unemployment remains at 7.8%, according to the National Employment Survey. Data recorded from Dec. 2023 to Feb. 2024 shows more than 182,000 people without registered jobs. Of these, 107,000 are men, making up 58% of the unemployed people in the country.

Workday is one of many U.S. companies investing in Costa Rica.  Last week, the California, USA-headquartered medical company, Shockwave Medical announced the opening of its operations in Costa Rica.
