Teleperformance Philippines? (TP), a global leader in customer experience management, launched a mentoring program 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 exciting career paths in the IT-Business Process Management (IT-BPM) industry.

They are graduates of different educational institutions in the country, including the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle ? College of St. Benilde, University of Sto. Tomas, Adamson University, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Arellano University, Letran College, and many more.

As industry professionals who continue to grow and build their careers in TP, these mentors have amassed a trove of experiences, expertise, and valuable insights that keep them agile and ready for the workplace of the future where the new generation of talents will have to thrive in.

Navigators have volunteered to do career talks, join site tours and job fairs, and spend time with students to share useful knowledge and 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. 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,? said Jeffrey Johnson, senior vice president of human capital resource management (HCRM) of Teleperformance Philippines.

For around ten years now, the HCRM group has been running its university-relations program TPLaunchPad as a bridge between the academic community and the abundant professional opportunities offered by the IT-BPM industry. It offers a range of services that allow 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.
