Teleperformance Kicks Off Pride Month Celebration in the Metaverse
Company Launches Events and Initiatives Set to Nurture and Grow Inclusive Work Environment
PARIS, June 13, 2022 – Teleperformance, a leading global group in digitally integrated business services, today announced its ‘Beyond Labels’ Pride program, marking the celebration of Pride Month and bringing together global practices of inclusion, diversity, and equity promotion to the Metaverse. Kicking off with a virtual Pride parade, ‘Beyond Labels’ offers education programs, a recruitment event in the Metaverse, in-person activities, social media endeavors, charitable donations, and more. These efforts are already seeing broad global participation, with Teleperformance offices around the world celebrating and initiating the ‘Beyond Labels’ Pride programs.
Metaverse Pride Parade
The Metaverse Pride Parade is a month-long celebration hosted by Decentraland that will feature curated content, entertainment from international music icons, and experiences to celebrate and amplify the voices of the LGBTQIA+ community. ‘TP Shuttle’ will be there for its first recruitment initiative in the metaverse. Candidates will be able to apply for a position on the company’s recruitment booth during the event. The parade will run 24/7 until the end of June.
The result of a year-long effort with inputs from several Teleperformance employees across the globe, the TP Pride education platform provides employees with a comprehensive toolkit of LGBTQ+ inclusion education and Teleperformance’s Guided Principles, including:
- The importance of gender pronouns and how to use them
- How to be an LGBTQ+ ally
- A Coming Out Guide
- A history on LGBTQ+ issues and what Pride means
“It is imperative that we support our employees and their mental health not just during Pride month, but all year long,” said Alan Winters, Chief People Officer and Chief Diversity Officer, Teleperformance. “Our aim with the ‘Beyond Labels’ Pride program and TP guided principles was to move the needle on global participation, tapping into employees that identify within the LGBTQIA+ community to develop this critical content. We also realize how important the promotion of mental health is to the LGBTQIA+ community and beyond and continue to create safe spaces and supportive programs to assist with those invisible struggles.”
