Stories connect us with one another – and stories that feature hope and present the strength of the human spirit allow us to find inspiration to strive for a better tomorrow.
Teleperformance’s latest documentary, “Inspiration for a Better Tomorrow,” features Bobby and Frankyn, two Teleperformance employees whose unique stories invite viewers to take a closer look at their triumphs, challenges, and hope for what lies ahead.
Bobby Bagga, from Teleperformance in India
As an individual with an orthopedic disability, Bobby faces many obstacles on a daily basis. “Within a fraction of a second, I could fall down,” she explains. “I cannot walk. So, stepping out of the house without anyone’s help is my biggest challenge.”
In a country where only 8.73% of government-owned buses in India are fully accessible, having a disability can be very limiting. But for Bobby, it’s all about living life to the fullest and reaching aspirations. You can tell that she’s really good at it – she looks great as she joyously gets her hair done in a salon, she chats to her friend with a radiant energy, and she talks passionately about how she was able to achieve a personal goal after years of saving: buying a new house.
Women empowerment, gender equality, and equal opportunity mean a lot to Bobby. “Females must be educated, skilled, and financially independent if they want to make their own decisions,” she states.
Frankyn Chacon, from Teleperformance in Colombia
In 2020, Venezuela faced extreme turmoil as the country went through a political, economic, and social crisis that greatly impacted thousands of lives. One of them is Frankyn, born in Cristobal, Venezuela, who migrated out of the country and found a new home in Bogota, Colombia.
Packing up one’s bags to start anew in a different country is not easy – and for Frankyn, who comes from a large and closely knit family, the hardest part was saying goodbye to his family. “Saying goodbye to my loved ones, especially my mom, and not knowing if I would be able to help her in the near future was the hardest, most complex part,” he narrates. “These are hard moments and emotions that I don’t think anyone is prepared to go through.”

When we say Teleperformance is an ‘equal opportunity’ employer, they live up to what they say. They understand the needs of every individual. – Bobby Bagga
