PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:
Teleperformance (Paris:TEP), the global leader in outsourced customer and citizen experience management and related digital services, announced today that it subsidiary Teleperformance Colombia has just received from Bureau Veritas the independent assurance about the use and inclusion of International Standard ISO 26000 – Guidance on Social Responsibility, in its operations in Colombia.
Teleperformance Colombia had engaged Bureau Veritas, an independent world-wide leader in assurance and consultancy services, to review its people practices especially in the context of Corporate Social Responsibility and compliance to local labour laws. Bureau Veritas conducted this independent assurance against the framework of ISO:26000 – Guidance on Social Responsibility.
Based on an intensive review over two weeks, Bureau Veritas concluded “nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the use of International Standard ISO 26000 does not adhere to the recommendations and guidelines there included. Likewise, nothing makes or has made us think that information analyzed during this assurance exercise is somehow incorrect or misleading”.
The main findings of the review are:
- Management team is highly aware of social responsibility matters. The company has taken serious steps towards inclusion, diversity, and non-discrimination, which is highly valued by employees. The company shows maturity in the way of managing relevant matters and employees’ expectations.
- It is important to highlight initiatives such as volunteering and mental health programs, as well as the fact that employees are aware of the consultation and claims mechanisms available in the company.
- Nothing has led Bureau Veritas to believe that labor or human rights are not respected at Teleperformance Colombia.
- From a general perspective, Bureau Veritas considers the following opportunities for improvement: document the due diligence exercise related to human rights: work hand-in-hand with other areas in order to boost a socially responsible conduct in all processes and in the company as a whole; transfer the good practices management systems in place to the social responsibility management system and hold more accountability meetings at national level.”
In the spirit of transparency, the Bureau Veritas summary report (as received by Teleperformance) is accessible on Teleperformance by clicking here.
