Teleperformance Philippines’ leadership and safety programs win in 18th Quill awards

Teleperformance Philippines was once again recognized for its leadership and employee programs at the recently held 18th Philippine Quill Awards by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Philippines.

The company received an Award of Excellence in Leadership Communication for its “A Message from Mike” video series, and an Award of Merit in Safety Communication for its “TP is a Safe Place to Work for all” campaign.

When Covid-19 first reached the Philippines, the government implemented a strict lockdown to help prevent the spread of the virus. Recognized as an essential service provider, Teleperformance Philippines was tasked to remain operational as the company provided essential support to government services, and industries such as healthcare, telecommunications, banking and finance, logistics, travel and hospitality.

Within the first year of his tour of duty, Mike Lytle, CEO of Teleperformance USA, Canada, and Philippines, led the organization of 47,000 people through the COVID-19 crisis. Using his personal leadership approach of empathy and mindfulness, the “Message from Mike” video series was an effective tool that offered an accessible and transparent channel of communication to reach TP employees.

Published in the company’s official Facebook page, the videos featured Lytle giving his personal messages to employees, providing updates, responding to their questions, and reminding them of essential health and safety protocols.

The video series was also part of a larger communication campaign that empowered Teleperformance employees to be well-informed advocates of responsible behaviors and decisions. At the core of the “TP is a Safe Place to Work for All” campaign was keeping every employee alert and equipped with useful information to help them navigate through a life-changing time.

A variety of communication materials were produced and disseminated and batches of signage were placed in all Teleperformance sites and facilities, including physical distancing markers, indoor traffic directional signage, elevator reminders, shuttle reminders and markers. Health and Wellness engagement activities such as yoga and mindfulness sessions were promoted through both internal and external channels. There were also forums and talks conducted by experts and professionals to help employees understand the virus and how to protect themselves.

“Through this continuing crisis, our commitment was to create a safe place to work for all, not only through strict compliance with our government’s health and safety protocols, but by empowering and enabling our people with essential knowledge and skills so that they can effectively protect themselves and their loved ones from the pandemic,” shared Lytle.

These wins are a testament to Teleperformance Philippines’ commitment to their employees’ health and safety, which was also reflected by the recently awarded extension of their certification as a Great Place to Work®.

Leading up to the certification, over 34,000 employees of Teleperformance Philippines were asked to anonymously rate the company in several areas and measured how employees perceive the organization based on the quality of workplace experience. Teleperformance Philippines became the first company in any industry in the country to win Great Place to Work® certification in 2018 and the only company in the country who has won for three years straight.

MSMEs Share their Digital Journey in Time for Shopee’s 4.4 Mega Shopping Sale

As e-commerce takes on greater importance in Filipinos’ lives, entrepreneurs continue to explore online selling opportunities to reach a new generation of tech-savvy users.

Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, provides an ideal avenue for MSMEs to quickly shift their businesses to e-commerce, the tools to upskill entrepreneurs, and engagement features to reach even more customers. With about 88,000 new online business registrations in 2020, 86,000 of these businesses registered from March to December when strict lockdown measures were implemented across the country. With many entrepreneurs going digital and turning to online platforms, Shopee shares two business owners’ success stories on the platform.

Jhoanna Tabije joined Shopee shortly after she lost her job in 2018. It was a low time for her, and it wasn’t easy to find another job that quickly. Seeing her struggle, her friend encouraged her to try selling online. She decided to join Shopee after, and within a year, her ready-to-wear clothing apparel business was thriving. “Being on Shopee helped us a lot. Not only were we able to reach customers from all over the Philippines, but we also got resellers from Mindanao, especially when the lockdown happened,” Tabije said.

Through Shopee and its in-app features like Shopee Feed, Tabije reached more customers and gained better exposure for her store. “I really plan to use Shopee Live soon since there’s probably a market we haven’t tapped into yet.” Tabije also started joining the mega campaigns in 2019 and saw a large increase in sales as a result.

For the upcoming Shopee 4.4 Mega Shopping Day, Tabije and her team stocked up in early March to prepare to meet the forecasted surge in orders. “Last 3.3, we received a total of 41,000 orders and are expecting more this coming 4.4.” Tabije encourages other budding entrepreneurs to try selling online as well. “I think this is e-commerce’s golden era. It’s easier, faster, and safer. Now is the perfect time to sell online. We’ve been on Shopee for three years now, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

With over 87,000 followers on Shopee and an overall star rating of 4.92 out of 5, Richard Salvo’s store is on the right path to achieving even more online success. He established his footwear business but ran into financial difficulties. He took the risk of renting a stall at the mall, but the costs were too high. To continue his business without spending too much, Salvo decided to sign up on Shopee in August of 2019.

“I was amazed because joining Shopee was very easy. I started exploring the different marketing tools within the app and used them to gain more exposure to potential buyers. We even utilized the ads and vouchers heavily that time,” Salvo said. After realizing how convenient it was to be a Shopee seller, he ended his contract with the mall as it wasn’t generating as much income compared to his Shopee store.

“In 2019, I started out by storing the stocks in our living room and only had one employee. In that same year, we achieved more than ₱2M sales on Shopee despite the lack of manpower and storage capacity,” he said.

However, 2020 was a challenging year for Salvo. “We were not able to sell because our couriers had to shut down their operations for a while due to the pandemic. Despite everything, we even got to expand our business on Shopee, employing 14 more personnel and renting a bigger space.”

The obstacles did not stop Salvo and his team from achieving even greater success. At the end of the year, Salvo’s business garnered more than ₱23 million in sales with the help of his online store on Shopee.

“We are really growing with Shopee. With our earnings, we invested in a warehouse where we can store our stocks. We also established our own Shoe Raw Material Supply Store. We bought the property where our main footwear manufacturing facility was built. We now have a total of 16 employees for our online shop alone and two footwear manufacturing facilities managed by R&A Shoes, plus seven suppliers,” Salvo added.

For 4.4, Salvo and his team are preparing early for the big sale. Two weeks before 4.4, they make sure that they have stocks ready and they study their business insights data to learn which items will sell the most quickly. “Our team also ensures that we have new products to offer our shoppers,” he added.

This coming 4.4, shoppers can look forward to great deals and new items from Abubot PH and Randa Shoes. Users can also expect other brand deals and amazing promotions at the Shopee 4.4 Mega Shopping Day. For more information, visit https://shopee.ph/m/4-4.

25 years as a trusted life insurance partner
Pru Life UK has always been committed to safeguarding its client’s best investment: their future. Since 1996, the company has served its clients’ evolving health and protection needs through its health insurance policies. In its first year, Pru Life UK became one of the first companies allowed by the Insurance Commission to issue dollar-denominated policies.

In 1998, Pru Life UK was ranked among the top 10 life insurance companies in the Philippines in terms of First-Year Premiums. In 2001, the company was named the fastest-growing life insurer in the country with a 63% growth rate.

The following year, Pru Life UK pioneered the first unit-linked or investment-linked life insurance product in the Philippines. The company reached another milestone in 2007 when it hit the P1 billion mark in terms of Annualized Premium Equivalent, a 130% growth from the previous year.

Pru Life UK expanded its reach to children when it launched the Cha-Ching Financial Literacy for the Youth Program in 2012. This was quickly followed by the introduction of the Prudence Foundation, the community investment arm of Prudential plc in Asia and Africa. More innovations were announced within the decade: the customer portal PRUAccess, the PRULink Global Emerging Markets fund, the PRULink Cash Flow fund, and the best-selling product PRULink Elite Protector 5.

In 2016, Pru Life UK inaugurated PRURide PH, which promotes cycling as a way to achieve health and wellness, and as a sustainable alternative mode of transportation. Three years later, PRURide PH received a 2.2-accreditation from the Union Cycliste Internationale, the world’s governing body for cycling.

The company began offering asset management and trust products in 2019, with the opening of its subsidiary Pru Life UK Investments.

“Our passion to reach more milestones is grounded in our ‘We DO’ commitment, a promise to listen, understand, and deliver to meet our clients’ health and wealth needs. Pru Life UK is excited to celebrate the next 25 weeks, and embrace the next 25 years, as we build on our legacy to be Filipinos’ trusted life insurance partner,” ends De Rosas.

Earlier this year, PRUDengue products were launched on Pulse, and more protection and health products are set for launch in the coming months of 2021.
