Customer experience management company Teleperformance Philippines (TP) launched a mentors system for its university-relations program, TP LaunchPad.
Dubbed “Navigators,” the mentors are 22 TP leaders from various support departments and operations teams who are keen to pay it forward to their alma mater and help guide students through career paths in the information-technology and business-process management (IT-BPM) industry.
The Navigators are graduates of different educational institutions in the country, including the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, University of Santo Tomas, Adamson University, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Arellano University and Letran College, among others.
As industry professionals in TP, the mentors have developed expertise that keep them agile and ready for the workplace of the future. Navigators have volunteered to do career talks, join site tours and job fairs, and spend time with students to share insights that will arm them with strategies on how to map out the sometimes-overwhelming job and career search phase of their lives.
“These leaders are proud of their alma mater and are grateful for the education and comradeship they’ve enjoyed while under the institution’s tutelage,” said Jeffrey Johnson, senior vice president of Human Capital Resource Management (HCRM) of Teleperformance Philippines. “Now they are in the position to also contribute to growth and development of the young ones and they’ve volunteered to do this because they believe in the future and the Filipino youth’s role in it.”
For around 10 years now, the HCRM group has been running its university-relations program, TP LaunchPad, as a bridge between the academic community and the abundant professional opportunities offered by the IT-BPM industry. The program offers a range of services that allows students to discover how the industry contributes to the local and global economy and peek into the world-class workplace environment it offers for employees.
