I remember when I used to be part of the BPO industry years ago. I still couldn’t believe I lasted 5 years working for several healthcare companies but those were some of the most memorable and enjoyable years of my life.
Not just because of the work, but because of the people I met there and the lasting friendships that came from it. The pay and the environment was also good. There was one account that I loved, (Canadian Healthcare claims) because it was easy to process.
But that was the exception. A lot of the other accounts I handled were hard, and we had to work overtime almost everyday. So when working at a BPO, I’ve learned that the salary may be good, but its the people and the environment that makes the work load a lot less bearable and the night shifts worth reporting for.
Teleperformance in the Philippines recently welcomed bloggers and vloggers to its TP Vertis North business site to give them an exclusive office tour and a sneak peek in the life and culture inside the leading IT-BPM organization.
TP Vertis North is one of the most recent Teleperformance sites, launched only last year. The interiors have been thoughtfully designed to create a vibrant environment for employees.
The physical environment supports a culture that is focused on health and wellness, as well as ensuring fun and camaraderie in the workplace. The site features rest and relaxation areas such as themed lounges, sleeping quarters, and massage chairs where employees can relax. What’s more, the massage chairs are cash operated, and the money goes to the company’s corporate social responsibility program Citizen of the World (COTW) which supports the most vulnerable sectors such as chronically ill children.
The TP Vertis North business site also has gender-neutral bathrooms, lactation rooms, a clinic, and a well-appointed gym with trainers from Elorde Boxing Gym, as well as entertainment rooms with billiards, karaoke, board games and game consoles.
Another strong aspect of the corporate culture is continuous learning and leadership development, and TP Vertis North houses the company’s second Leadership Development Center (LDC) that will be officially launched soon.
The LDC, a facility focused especially on the upskilling of TP employees for leadership roles in the workplace of the future, is the second branch that the company is offering to its people. The first one is located in TP Aura, Bonifacio Global City.
People programs that focus on continuous learning, diversity and inclusion, and health and wellness and indeed among advantages of being part of TP and its culture. Teleperformance Philippines, the first organization in the country to be certified as a Great Place to Work, is committed to keep honing and developing the talent and skills of their employees to mold them into the leaders and empathetic people managers.
In 2018 and 2019, Teleperformance Philippines earned back-to-back certifications from the Great Place to Work institute, a global research and consultation company that provides benchmark standards for companies to create the outstanding organizational cultures.
The certification was earned through an organization-wide survey that asked the employees for their opinions. Over 26,000 employees across Teleperformance’s existing sites in the Philippines responded and participated in a confidential online survey that rated the company in terms of culture, teamwork, growth and learning opportunities, leadership communication and support, sense of pride, work environment, among others. This comprehensive survey was independently conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute.
