News : Convergys and Glasswing: Committed to Education in El Salvador
San Salvador, El Salvador, July 5, 2016 -- Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), global provider in customer management, signed a cooperation agreement with Glasswing International that will benefit students from public schools, helping them improve their English and customer service skills. The initiative, called "English for Tomorrow", includes intensive English training for students from C.E. Gerardo Barrios and the participation of Convergys volunteers. The program wants to enhance the labor potential of these students, thus promoting better quality of life for them and their families.
"We are pleased to partner with Glasswing. Our work together in the communities helps us turn our commitment into reality, knowing that education is the main tool for those countries who long for better quality of life for their people and for future generations," said Eugenia Rojas, Senior Manager for Communications for Convergys Latin America.
As part of this partnership, more than 60 Convergys volunteers have joined the initiative and are actively participating in "English for Tomorrow". They provide their technical expertise during tutoring sessions and become positive role models for students, while helping them reinforce their English and customer service skills.
"We are very excited about the Alliance between Glasswing International and Convergys El Salvador and about including our team in a project that promotes education in the country. We strongly believe that it is our individual contributions that make a big difference in society," said Cesar Bendeck, Director for Convergys in El Salvador.
Glasswing and Convergys are also working in Nicaragua, benefiting over 100 young people in the Central American region.
"Working and supporting youth is invaluable for the development of El Salvador. Convergys is a role model for all: A company that cares about the community, and that is how they are changing the lives of youth for the better. We have no doubt they will become leaders and create a multiplier effect in their communities," Celina de Sola, Vice-president and cofounder of Glasswing International, added.
Convergys arrived in El Salvador in 2005. Since then it has grown to more than 2500 employees. Through the program CAN (Community Action Network), the company supports philanthropic and social initiatives in favor of education. The company promotes a sincere spirit of participation and volunteerism and continuously invites employees to take the lead in social projects so they can mark the difference and create a better future for everyone.
