)-- Teleperformance, the global leader in outsourced multichannel customer experience management, was recognized at the White House Champions of Change ceremony, hosted by President Barack Obama, for its extensive efforts in creating jobs for young adults in Ohio. The event awarded organizations that embrace and exemplify the ideals of the Putting America Back to Work initiative. Teleperformance currently employs more than 2,200 people in Ohio.
Jim Phillips, Vice President of Recruiting, Teleperformance, represented Teleperformance at the ceremony in Washington, D.C. “We are proud to be recognized as an organization dedicated to putting America back to work,” Phillips said. “Our partnership with Central Ohio Workforce Investment Corporation is very important to us and we are fully committed to continuing to partner with them in the future.”
Phillips collaborated with the Central Ohio Workforce Investment Corporation (COWIC) in recent months to co-author several articles detailing Teleperformance’s investment in Ohio job creation. These articles appeared on the White House blog and caught the attention of Columbus, Ohio mayor, Michael Coleman. Mayor Coleman invited Phillips to participate in a call with President Obama and other organizations that have done significant work to further the goals of Putting America Back to Work. The organizations shared their strategies and successes in job creation and were invited by President Obama to the White House Champions of Change recognition ceremony.
