Teleperformance marches for LGBTQIA+ rights across the Philippines
MANILA, Philippines — Teleperformance (TP), global leader in digital transformation and people experience management, marched along with allies and members of the LGBTQIA+ community on June 24–25 to support the call for gender equality and empowerment. The equal opportunity employer highlighted the slogan, “#FreeToBeMeAtTP,” for Pride March 2023.
Teleperformance is the first company and BPO firm in the Philippines to be certified Great Place to Work ® for five consecutive years. The company is also a back-to-back recipient of the Philippines Best Workplaces™ award this year.
Doubling down on its commitment to promote safe and empowering environments from the workplace and beyond, TP collaborated with the organizers of Pride PH, Northern Luzon Pride, Mandaue Pride March, and PrideFest Davao to champion the Pride March events held in Quezon City, Baguio, Cebu, and Davao.

This year, the company recorded 1,500 participants at different Pride March locations in the country, breaking the five hundred mobilization target.
“The great thing about TP Pride is that it’s constantly evolving. So, when our employees have feedback and suggestions on how we can make TP Pride even better, we make sure to implement those things,” said Chief People Officer and Chief of Staff Jeffrey Johnson.
“I am really, really proud of TP Pride because this program continues to get better and it continues to see more participation. I look forward to where the future will take us,” he added.
Several of the company’s Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DE&I) initiatives like TP Pride, a platform for gender awareness and gender sensitivity, are powered by grassroots advocates from different levels of the organization who regularly gather for learning, support, and community activities such as the annual Pride March across the country.
Aside from the annual Pride March, TP’s support has materialized with the creation of a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) policy that caters to the particular medical needs of all employees, regardless of gender; and the commitment to advocacies, such as, but not limited to, the development of a comprehensive and industry-recognized HIV awareness program.
Another DE&I initiative, Teleperformance’s TP Women ensure equal representation and opportunities within the company’s workforce. In the Philippines, over 50% of employees are women across the board, including in management positions.
