A symbol of excellence in public relations, the Anvil Awards of the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP) are given out annually to exemplary public relations programs, tools, and practitioners for achieving the highest standards of PR practice, specifically outstanding professional insight, creativity, skill, and resourcefulness.

A multi-sectoral panel of communications professionals painstakingly vets hundreds of entries to handpick award winners.

“We are deeply honored to be recognized once again by the PRSP,” stated Craig Reines, Sitel chief operating officer for Asia Pacific. “These prestigious awards highlight Sitel’s commitment to continuously improving our workplace for our associates by launching fun and innovative programs aimed to promote their wellbeing while investing in the growing BPO industry in the Philippines. Our award-winning Sitel Academy program provides free essential BPO skills training to aspiring applicants and students and this year we’ve taken it a step further with Sitel Academy Plus,” Reines explained.

He added: “We now offer the same skills training to Persons with Disabilities, helping them overcome work skill gaps and gain employment at Sitel.”

Sitel puts a premium on programs that put people first and provide opportunities to more Filipinos. These latest accolades underscore the company’s dedication to creating a more inclusive and diverse BPO industry and improving the lives of BPO professionals in the Philippines.
