“Since the acquisition of People Support in 2008, Philippines has been a catalyst for Aegis’ growth. We would like to articulate that Aegis has had a wonderful experience in the Philippines — great clients, a great leadership team and above all great employees.
We regret the upload of the recent video on Malaysia. The video was developed locally by an agency and uploaded in error and the contents were NOT approved by Aegis Corporate. We are a global company and strongly care about the broader communities in which we operate and are fully committed to both diversity and inclusion. We would like to reiterate that Aegis has had a great experience in the Philippines and this has been one of the keys to our success.
We apologize and regret any communication that may have inadvertently hurt any sentiments.”
