In a statement, Roy of CIB.O affirmed the influence of Cebu’s IT-BPO sector and its key players, such as Teleperformance, in the overall agenda to strengthen national and local economic development.
“[It] is for this reason that CIB.O is bringing back its annual awards and recognition initiative to celebrate the companies in Cebu that made a difference in the industry through their outstanding performance, astounding contributions to the regional and national economies, and for setting prime example for each and every other organization to follow and aspire to emulate,” says Roy.
Teleperformance, with two locations and nearly 8,000 employees in Cebu City as of Q1 2023, stands out for creating jobs and contributing to the local economy’s post-pandemic recovery.
