Teleperformance Philippines Managing Director Travis Coates graciously accepted the recognition on behalf of his team, in front of an audience of more than 1,000 peers gathered at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in Pasay City on October 17.
“It’s an honor to receive this award on behalf of our team and to be recognized among this wonderful group of companies. I’m also deeply humbled to lead Teleperformance in the Philippines, which now employs nearly 40,000 Filipinos,” said Coates. “Teleperformance has the most amazing workforce and we work very hard to give them the best possible employee experience. We are also very active in giving back to our communities and we will continue to work even harder to be the kind of employer of choice who ultimately wins awards like this. We truly appreciate this recognition and congratulate all of the winners.”
