As a people-focused organization, we strive to create meaningful connections that bring people together, driving value for all stakeholders while ensuring that future generations can meet their own needs. As such, the Citizen of the World (COTW) program is our humanitarian commitment to generating a positive impact on local communities, particularly vulnerable children and their families, through fundraising, in-kind donation, and volunteer work. Essentially, COTW is a platform where Teleperformance gets together in all our global locations to support people who need help.
We serve those who serve us.
As part of our COTW efforts, Teleperformance, together with Feed the Children, Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes, and Blue Star Families, rolled out the “No Hunger Holidays” initiative in Salt Lake City, Utah, in December, providing food, hygiene items, women’s dignity products, children’s books, and grocery vouchers to 400 military families — active-duty personnel and veterans who tirelessly serve their country and people. “It makes me feel good as a person that I can donate time, and that the folks that I work with and admire the most are out giving their time and support to be here, and the ones that can’t, they actually support as well financially,” shared Nick Peltier, Director of Customer Experience at Teleperformance.
It takes a village to share the good.
Since 2006, Teleperformance has been partnering with Feed the Children, a non-profit organization focused on alleviating childhood hunger, with a mission to provide hope and resources for those without life’s essentials. All donations made to the organization is through recurring employee payroll contributions via the TP Let’s Connect system. All employee donations help sustain food distributions and relief efforts.
One food distribution truck, which costs USD 16,000, contains non-perishable food items, hygiene essentials, and other products that can assist 400 families. Meanwhile, a disaster relief distribution truck, which costs USD 15,000, contains non-perishable food and other items that depend on the type of aid required for recovery — all in bulk to reach more families (approximately 1,000 people).
In 2021, four food distributions benefited 1,600 families in Albany, Georgia, Fort Knox in Kentucky, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Richmond, Virginia. Disaster relief efforts were also mobilized after the Texas winter storm, Hurricane Ida, and tornadoes that hit the mid-US, aiding 4,080 affected families.
We inspire change by giving back.
As citizens of the world, we are proud of our culture of giving at Teleperformance. We are also grateful for the unwavering support of our people and the invaluable assistance of our partners.
Let’s continue to effect positive change by giving back to the communities where we work and live — and beyond. Together, we can certainly do so much more!
