TELUS International Philippines and Gawad Kalinga display spirit of giving 
Tony Meloto, during his speech to TELUS team members, said, "For me, BPO should stand for Bayani ng Pilipinas (heroes of the P
hilippines) since you help the Philippine economy by becoming the call center capital of the world," he said in reference to the Philippines overtaking India as the highest revenue-generating BPO country in the world. He also added, "Mahalin natin ang bayan natin. Maging volunteer sa GK (Show some love to your country. Volunteer for GK). You should be proud of working for TELUS because you are helping the fight to eliminate poverty in the country."
