It’s the results season again and I’m pleased to say that the Teleperformance Q1 results are looking good. We saw very strong sales growth with revenue up 11.7%, which is in line with analyst expectations and is the twentieth straight quarter that we have exceeded 5% growth.
Although EMEA is a very developed market, in our region alone we grew revenue 5.4%. We have seen strong growth is in Greece, where the Group, as in Lisbon, is benefiting from the success of its multilingual platforms from some of the fastest growing industry markets in the region like e-tailing, online travel agencies, consumer electronics and Inside Sales programs.
These strong results really back up what Forbes magazine wrote last year about the value of being a trustworthy company. In fact, in the modern networked economy basic values, such as trust, are becoming more important than ever in the buying decision.
It’s also exciting to see a clear correlation between our people strategy and business performance – Teleperformance Greece was recently named one of the best workplaces in Europe by the Best Place To Work Institute.
