At TaskUs we are all about creating an incredible Employee Experience. We know that the most important thing to many of our employees is their children. At the same time, we feel a tremendous amount of gratitude to the places where we open offices. We tap into the educated people of these regions pairing them with opportunities for meaningful employment from some of the world’s most exciting companies. We know that we would be nothing without our people and their education. So in an effort to give back, sustain and improve the education of future generations we created the TaskUs Scholars Program.
Four years ago this program started with just three children. We recognized that education was a major challenge in the Philippines – the countries public schools spend just $137 a year per pupil, about 100 times less than the United States. So TaskUs made a commitment to pay for the private primary and secondary education of the children of our staff. Each year since we have grown the program. We let in any TaskUs employee who has been with the company for over a year and is in good standing.
I’m thrilled to announce that this year we will sponsor the tuition fees of 55 of our employees’ children. This is the largest number of scholars participating in the program to date! We’re incredibly excited to see the way that the Scholars Program has taken off, and we can’t wait to see the impact it will have for communities in the Philippines.
