Once in my life, I was part of the Telus International Philippines family, and I am very grateful and proud to be one. The company lives by the rule of “Work hard, Party harder! And that is why Telus peeps are a bunch of happy employees. The work environment is challenging, yet it offers a family-oriented vibes, wherein almost everyone is free to approach the upper management and we address each other on a first name basis. Aside from being competent in the industry, Telus International Philippines give opportunities to its employees to give back to the community and be part of charitable deeds such as Gawad Kalinga and the likes. If I were to ask if I would recommend Telus to my friends and loved ones to become their next workplace, my answer will be a massive YES!
Leading outsourcing services provider TELUS International Philippines (TIP) has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 National Outstanding Volunteer Award for an Organization, the only Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company to win the Search for Outstanding Volunteers. This award was given by the Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA), the government agency mandated to promote and coordinate volunteer programs and services in the country.

TIP also supports Kythe Foundation in its Adopt-a-Hospital program. It continues to partner with a range of non-profit organizations that share the same ultimate goal of alleviating poverty in the Philippines and enhancing the health and well-being of children and families.
