New Springfield call center promises 200 jobs

The center is scheduled to open December 1.

The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce announced FLS Connect, a political communication and fundraising company based in Minnesota, has leased the former Strategic Fundraising building in Medical Mile Plaza, 3300 S. National Ave.

Chamber economic development staff along with its economic development partners worked with FLS Connect for much of 2015, assisting the company in its selection of the Springfield region. FLS cited the quality of Springfield’s workforce. “Springfield offers top notch employees with Midwestern values that fit our mission of building a one?to?one relationship between our clients and constituents,” said FLS partner and Missouri native Tony Feather.
