Teleperformance Philippines: Certified Great Place to Work®


Together with other bloggers, I recently got to take a peek at the life and culture inside Teleperformance Philippines -Vertis North. TP Vertis North branch was launched in 2018, boasting of well-thought of interiors designed to create a vibrant environment for its employees.

The physical environment supports a culture that is focused on health and wellness, as well as ensuring fun and camaraderie in the workplace. The site features rest and relaxation areas such as themed lounges, sleeping quarters, and massage chairs where employees can relax. What’s more, the massage chairs are cash operated, and the money goes to the company’s corporate social responsibility program Citizen of the World (COTW) which supports the most vulnerable sectors such as chronically ill children.

10 Pushup Alternatives from Amateur to Intermediate

The pushup exercise never gets old. For Many people, it is a source of disappointment and frustration because it is not a simple workout. Depending on an individual’s strength level, the pushup can challenge the bench-press with regards to strength gains. Merely including a resistance band in your pushup routine is just as challenging as performing a weighted barbell bench press. If you deem that pushups are an easy workout, it is safe to suggest that you may need a change in how you do them.
Pushups largely focus on your chest, triceps, and shoulder muscles. They also target the ab muscles, but may not be as impactful as the three other stated muscles. Think of pushups as performing a plank but with some movement involved. You need to be stiff in your abdomen and maintain a straight back to avoid harming your spine and messing up your body posture. Also, make sure you keep your chin raised and your chest towards the ground to get the complete range of motion.
