Webhelp operates with a high level of social responsibility, and our determination to conduct business in an ethical, fair and enlightened way challenges us to be better for our people and for our communities.
Webhelp is passionate about upholding human rights and promoting diversity. We partner with local authorities on issues affecting vulnerable groups, and consistently offer employment and training opportunities. We work with the UK Government “Access to Work” programme to ensure that working environments are accessible, allowing those with disabilities to enjoy successful careers within Webhelp.
We offer positive working conditions, and provide a pleasant and modern working environment. Our commitment to health and safety has been consistently strong since the company launched, and we continually strive to improve conditions in line with evolving standards. Webhelp also places considerable emphasis on offering social benefits and respecting the culture of our unique communities.
Webhelp’s drive to promote increased environmental responsibility and mitigate the impact of climate change has led to a range of successful initiatives. We invest in energy and water efficiency technologies with the aim of increasing sustainability and reducing environmental impact. So far we have succeeded: both CO2 emission and water consumption have fallen even as the company has grown.
Our successful environmental initiatives have included upgrades and control adjustments to our Heating, Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC) systems, large LED projects and the deployment of power management software for computers.
Our people are educated to recognise the signs of extortion, bribery and other unlawful or unethical practices. Ethical company policies, careful suppler evaluation and advanced software tools for checking and processing requisitions have all contributed to Webhelp’s anti-corruption initiative.
