Utah Governor Gary Herbert Visits Teleperformance U.S.A., Recognizes Company for Its Award-Winning Military Veteran Initiatives

Teleperformance U.S.A. Hires More Than 3,000 Veterans and Family Members in 2015, Achieves Multiple Recognitions

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - March 09, 2016) -  Teleperformance, the global leader in outsourced multichannel customer experience management, received a visit from Utah Governor Gary Herbert, along with Eric Nay, State Director of Business Development and Incentives, at its Salt Lake City contact center. Governor Herbert recognized Teleperformance for the company's business in the state and its unique veteran initiatives and job opportunities in the local Utah community and across the country.

"Veterans are great employees, and I applaud Teleperformance, and businesses like them, for their unique veteran initiatives," Gov. Gary R. Herbert said. "Utah is a great place for veterans to work with the second lowest veteran unemployment rate in the country."

This visit from the governor also comes on the heels of the 2015 Freedom Award awarded by the state of Utah, for the hiring of disabled veterans. Teleperformance currently employs approximately 26,000 U.S. employees in 26 contact centers in the United States, including more than 5,000 military veterans and their families, with around 3,000 hired in 2015 alone. "We are grateful for the strong relationship we have developed with the veteran community across the country," said Miranda Collard, Teleperformance President, Enterprise Service Delivery. "We admire these men and women and the sacrifices they have made for our country. We are honored to employ such hardworking, talented individuals at our company. Many of them have become an integral part of our leadership team and I am proud to work alongside them." 

In 2015, Teleperformance was recognized by several other individuals and organizations for its veteran hiring initiatives. Specifically, Jill Biden recognized the company for its Military Spouse Employment Partnership at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., earlier last year. The company made a pledge to continue hiring military spouses throughout its contact center locations across the United States.

Teleperformance was recognized by GI Jobs Magazine for two consecutive years as a top Military Friendly employer. Additionally, Teleperformance was named the "Best of the Best" by U.S. Veterans Magazine.

"Our veterans hiring initiative goes above and beyond simply employing former military members and their spouses," said Jim Phillips, Teleperformance Vice President of Recruiting. "We are truly passionate about this cause here at Teleperformance, and are continuously looking for ways to support the veteran community through not only improved hiring efforts but also through community outreach, volunteering and fund-raising efforts."

Teleperformance U.S.A. holds several "GI Go Jeans for Troops" days each year in which employees donate money to dress down and all proceeds benefit military members and their families. This is one of several such charitable initiatives as part of the company's larger Citizen of the World program, which aims to help the world's most vulnerable populations meet their basic survival needs and ultimately reach their individual potential.


Teleperformance, the worldwide leader in outsourced multichannel customer experience management, serves companies around the world with customer care, technical support, customer acquisition and debt collection programs.
