Manila, Philippines—August 26, 2014 – Teleperformance, the world’s leading provider of outsourced customer experience management services, recently renewed its partnership with Polytechnic University of the Philippines – Manila (PUP Manila) to help drive employment growth in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry.

A memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed by the respective officials of Teleperformance and PUP Manila, which aimed to unify their efforts in the promotion of career opportunities in the BPO sector and the expansion of the students’ knowledge in the advancements in information and communications technology.
