Charito Plaza, presented the awards during the Philippine Economic Zone Authority Investors’ Recognition Night, which was held on April 4th at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
This is the third time that Teleperformance has won the award for Outstanding Community Project of the Year, and the first time for Outstanding Employer of the Year. Teleperformance in the Philippines was recognized for building thousands of career opportunities, implementing strong employee development programs, providing a safe and convenient work environment, and for its sound business performance. Established in the Philippines in 1996 with 100 employees, Teleperformance expanded to 40,000 team members twenty years later.
In 2016, Teleperformance raised about US$ 141,000 to support its chosen beneficiaries such as the Philippine Red Cross, Gawad Kalinga, Kythe Foundation, White Cross Orphanage, and Mary Mother of Mercy Home for the Elderly and the Abandoned. The various programs garnered a total of 11,900 employee volunteer hours, with a total of 320 trees planted, 100 homes built, 38 classrooms renovated, and 2,800 lives saved from employee blood donations.
Teleperformance has actively implemented its advocacy programs through its corporate social responsibility arm, Citizen of the World, with primary focus on helping the sick, children, the elderly, and those affected by natural disasters.
As a people-focused organization, Teleperformance makes the conscious decision to let our core values guide us in developing programs that support our people’s professional development and inspire us to better serve the community.
Receiving these awards from esteemed business and government leaders helps to continuously motivate us to deliver best-in-class services and to always support the communities in the 74 countries where we live and work. Our people are really happy to share their time with the less fortunate, and this recognition truly creates a strong and positive reinforcement of our local community care efforts.
We wish to congratulate our employees and leadership at Teleperformance in the Philippines for their ongoing hard work and dedication, not only serving clients, but also helping to make their communities better.
