How is the in-store retail customer experience evolving?
American retailers appear to be facing a crisis. Brands like JC Penney, American Apparel, and Sears are all closing stores and customers there...
Leading global customer experience outsourcer, Webhelp, celebrated the dedication and commitment of its colleagues at the company’s annual Star Awards held last week in The Bay Hotel, Camps Bay, Cape Town.
Representatives from sites across South Africa gathered for a Gatsby-themed gala dinner and drinks reception hosted by actor and presenter Nico Panagio.
Also on hand to provide the entertainment were Webhelp’s Got Talent winners, singer Terrence Makhaye and hip hop dancers Wesley Henry and Shana-Lee Williams.
A total of 11 awards for excellence were handed out on the night, with Edward Quinn, who works at The Point in Pretoria, scooping the title of Shining Star of the Year. Craig Gibson, CEO of Webhelp SA, said:
“Edward is a hard worker and the quality of his work reflects this. He embodies the Webhelp values of commitment and unity, always delivers on his objectives and is driven to succeed. He has not only outperformed expectations but has also excellently dealt with complaints and helped out fellow colleagues to deliver excellent service to our clients. Edward is always ready for challenges, has fantastic attention to detail and always acts with integrity. He is a credit to himself and to Webhelp.
“Tonight is about thanking the team for a job well done this year. It has been an amazing year for Webhelp. We’ve gained major new clients, such as Unilever, announced significant acquisitions, including the recent purchase of top Nordic customer excellence firm, GoExcellent, now known as Webhelp Nordic, and brought on board a fantastic new major shareholder, the global investment group, KKR.
“None of these amazing achievements would have been possible without the dedication, hard work and commitment to creating the highest quality customer experience that our colleagues deliver day in and day out. I am tremendously proud of the team and congratulate them on their wonderful performance this year.”
The 11 awards were as follows:
Each of the winners received a trophy, a certificate and R5,000.
