Teleperformance, the worldwide leader in outsourced omnichannel customer experience management services, recently helped rehabilitate several public elementary and secondary schools across the country in support of the annual “Brigada Eskwela” school cleanup program of the Department of Education.
Nearly 300 employees from Teleperformance Philippines volunteered in the renovation of 29 public elementary and secondary school classrooms in various communities in Metro Manila, Baguio, Bacolod, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro and Davao.
The schools visited by Teleperformance include SSS Village Elementary School in Marikina City, Lucban Elementary School in Baguio City, Emilio Lizares National High School in Bacolod City, Tiltilon Elementary School in Liloan, Cebu, Kamakawan Elementary School in Cagayan de Oro City, and Biao Elementary School in Davao City.
The participating Teleperformance employees volunteered a total of 1,769 hours for this year’s Brigada Eskwela program. Through their combined effort, the team was able to repaint a total of 29 classrooms and refurbish 2,500 chairs and 250 tables.
The teams also used vibrant color schemes in repainting the classrooms and chairs to make them more conducive for learning and to inspire creativity among students who will return to school this June.
This is the fourth year that Teleperformance has participated in Brigada Eskwela. This company-wide effort was made possible through “Citizen of the World,” the corporate social responsibility arm of the outsourcing firm.
Teleperformance Philippines continues to promote employee volunteerism among its 40,000 employees to support the company’s CSR activities. These include building houses, planting trees, cleaning rivers, conducting blood donation and relief operations, tending to the sick and the elderly, and pursuing other community enrichment programs.
