Teleperformance gets hall of fame award in the Philippines
Teleperformance, a leading business process outsourcing company and one of the largest private sector employers in the Philippines, received the Hall of Fame for the Outstanding Community Project Award from the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).
PEZA Director General Charito B. Plaza, together with political adviser Francis Tolentino representing President Rodrigo Duterte, conferred the award to Teleperformance Philippines in recognition of its enduring contribution and advocacies through its corporate social responsibility arm, Citizen of the World.
Teleperformance Philippines Managing Director Travis Coates received the award during PEZA’s 23rd Anniversary and Investors’ Recognition Night at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Citizen of the World, which focuses on helping the sick, children, the elderly, and those affected by natural disasters, earlier won the PEZA Outstanding Community Project of the Year for three years – 2013, 2014 and 2017. Citizen of the World has successfully fostered the culture of employee volunteerism, as it partnered with various institutions promoting different advocacies.
Over the last 12 years, Citizen of the World and its partners have engaged employees in their various initiatives, and have generated thousands of volunteer hours and millions of pesos in donations. Among the numerous projects implemented by COTW include the 100 housing units and community facilities for the Teleperformance-Gawad Kalinga Village in Tanay, Rizal Province, quarterly blood donation drives for Philippine Red Cross, partnership with Kythe Foundation, annual participation in Department of Education’s Brigada Eskwela, and monthly support for orphanages and homes for the elderly.
“We are humbled by this recognition from PEZA, a valued development partner. This inspires and motivates us to keep reaching out, to keep doing even more for those in need,” said Coates.
“It is heartwarming how PEZA recognizes the contribution of our employees to building resilient communities in the country. As an organization, we always strive to support a strong and progressive Philippines. We continue to help because it is in our culture to care for our communities in the same way we care about our clients and customers. It brings us joy to know that we can also inspire others to work together to make a difference in the world,” Coates said.
“As a people company, Teleperformance Philippines aims to create programs that encourage consistently high volunteer participation and employee engagement, as an expression of our shared values of compassion and caring for the community and the planet,” said Jeffrey Johnson, Senior Vice President for Human Capital Resource Management.
“We are truly proud of our team who have never failed to generously give their time and effort to show how they truly care for their communities.
