    Sitel Philippines reiterated its support for Diversity and Inclusivity at the recently held Philippine Financial Industry Pride’s Pride Gala as a Silver Sponsor. The gala brought together several top business brands in the country to highlight their commitment to providing equal opportunities and a safe workplace for LGBTQ+ Filipino professionals. This commitment was documented with representatives from each company signing the official PFIP pledge book.

    “We have been a strong supporter and partner of PFIP for over two years,” stated Jorelle Robles, Culture and Corporate Communications Senior Manager, Sitel PHANZ. “We are committed to strengthening Sitel’s Diversity and Inclusion policies and to partner with like-minded companies to see what we can learn from one another and how we can further develop and enhance our existing programs.”

    Haidee Enriquez, Chief People Officer, Sitel PHANZ added: “A testament to that commitment is the recent launch of Sitel’s All is Well Total Rewards program, which provides, among other enhancements, benefits specific to the members of our PRIDE Barkada and their dependents.”

    PFIP has held events and pushed for collaborations with companies in the Philippines to facilitate the exchange of best practices between professionals and provide actionable ideas on how to boost office inclusion practices, strengthen equal rights policies, institutionalize SOGIE at work, and create a work environment where everyone can thrive and be themselves, without fear of discrimination.

    Going on its fourth year, PFIP remains committed to growing its efforts in the year ahead. “In 2020 our focus will be – impact, improve, and lead,” Weena Ekid, incoming PFIP Chair, shared. “We will be opening more chapters in the countryside and hosting more leadership seminars. We will also be holding the very first LGBTQ Job Forum in the country.”
