Teleperformance backs 4-day work week

Teleperformance, the second largest operator in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry in the Philippines has expressed support for the proposed compressed four-day working week scheme. Teleperformance Philippines human capital resource management senior vice president Jeffrey Johnson said the firm is already implementing flexible work arrangements and adjusting to a compressed working week will not be hard for the company.
