StarTek Opens Doors to Employees' Families

Jonesboro, AR-StarTek located in Jonesboro, has come to the rescue by opening their facility to employees and their families impacted by the ice storm and subsequent power outages. The facility currently has several dozen people that have sought shelter at the facility located at 2908 S. Caraway Road.

"We have approximately a dozen children and of course spouses and older siblings," said David Phipps, Site Director.  "We provided lunch today and pizzas for employees last night and are trying to make sure everyone is warm and comfortable.  It is our understanding that crews are working diligently to restore power to the area but until then employees are welcome to bring their families who are without power."

The StarTek site is operating on generators. The facility will also accommodate an overnight stay if necessary. The Joneboro site employs approximately 600.

"As a company StarTek has a history of providing shelter for our employees and their families," continued Phipps. "We have done similar sheltering at other sites when needed around the country. We want to make sure our employees and their families are safe and for them to know they have a place to go.
