As part of its 25th anniversary, Teleperformance Philippines (TP) is observing TP Pride that is said to “seek to strengthen employee engagement and promote a diverse and inclusive culture” within the company.
“We strive to create a diverse and inclusive environment for our employees,” said Jeffrey Johnson, senior vice president for Human Capital Resource Management. As such, “this year’s Pride month celebration is just the beginning of a stronger, deeper year-long commitment to promote this advocacy in various branches of the company.”
Kickstarted in 2018, TP Pride seeks to raise awareness and educate TP employees about LGBTQIA issues. For this year’s iteration, Teleperformance will host a forum called ‘Queeries: Leaders’ Discussion on LGBT Mental Health and Inclusion,’ guest-starring organizations such as Your Millennial Psychologist, Psychological Association of the Philippines Special Interest Group, Philippine Financial & Inter-Industry Pride, and Philippine LGBT COC. This is to “educate leaders, decision makers, and LGBTQIA colleagues on the value in creating and maintaining LGBTQIA inclusive practices in the company,” TP said in a statement released to Outrage Magazine.
Also part of their efforts to push gender diversity in the workplace, TP is hosting the TP Traiblazer Podcast, where special episodes feature TP Pride leaders and guests who share their views on LGBTQIA relationships and transgender inclusion. Along with this is the TPTV Pride Special Series with TP’s LGBTQIA employees providing insights on LGBTQIA-related pop culture.
Lastly, to help LGBTQIA communities in distress, TP will host “TP Pride 4 Pride Challenge”, an online fundraiser to raise money for LGBTQIA organizations. The funds will be used to provide 100 care packages composed of sanitary kits, masks, and food to support our LGBTQIA people in need.
TP – a member of the Philippine Financial and Inter-Industry Pride – began operations in the Philippines in 1996. It now employs over 45,000 people in the country and operates over 30,000 workstations in 22 business sites located across Metro Manila, Antipolo, Baguio, Bacolod, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro and Davao.
