Teleperformance, the world’s leading provider of outsourced omnichannel customer experience management services, turned over P200,000 worth of cash donations to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) in support of its relief operations for families and communities affected by Typhoon Nina, which hit the Bicol and Visayas regions late last year.
A company-wide relief drive was initiated through the Citizen of the World, the Corporate Social Responsibility arm of Teleperformance. The effort successfully raised P100,000 in cash donations from employees. In addition, for every applicant received on the first week of January 2017, Teleperformance donated 50 pesos to the PRC, boosting the total cash donations to P200,000. The drive also successfully collected P100,000 worth of in-kind donations from all 18 sites of Teleperformance across the country.
Teleperformance Senior Vice President for Human Capital Resource Management Jeffrey Johnson presented the check to Philippine Red Cross officers, Ria Rivera (OIC for PRC Rizal Chapter and Branch Administrator for PRC Mandaluyong City) and Hilarion Dimagiba (Auditor, Board of Directors for PRC Rizal Chapter) during the turnover ceremony that was recently held at Teleperformance EDSA Greenfield in Mandaluyong City. They were joined by Teleperformance officers, HCRM Support Manager Tracy Ganaban, Communications and Marketing Director Marilyn Ventenilla and COTW Ambassador Emil Macalinao.
“Since 2008, Teleperformance Philippines has been actively supporting Philippine Red Cross’ efforts in providing assistance to its beneficiaries as part of the company’s continuing initiatives to mobilize its resources to help those affected by calamities. We continue to engage our employees to be part of this noble cause to create positive impact to our communities,” Johnson says.
Teleperformance Philippines is actively involved in the conduct of various social responsibility efforts, which includes building houses for typhoon-struck communities, repairing school classrooms, planting trees, adopting a river, holding blood donation drives, organizing relief operations, caring for the sick, the children and the elderly, and promoting energy-conservation measures in all its sites.
