Webhelp Celebrates 740 Years of Excellent Service

News
12th May 2017

 

Leading global customer experience expert Webhelp has celebrated 740 years of dedicated customer service from a total of 66 colleagues at a gala dinner at Cameron House Hotel, Loch Lomond, on Saturday, May 6.

The colleagues, from sites in Falkirk, Dearne Valley, Kilmarnock, Dunoon and Rothesay, were rewarded for 10, 15 and 20 years of service to the business, its clients and their customers.

Webhelp’s chief operating officer, Andy Doig, was on hand to present the awards. He said: “I am tremendously proud to be able to recognise 66 people from within our business for at least 10 years of hard work and dedication.

“Sometimes people have the impression that contact centre work is just something you do until a better option comes along. This is proof that people can build genuinely satisfying and rewarding careers with Webhelp and in the contact centre industry.

“The people we have recognised tonight work in different parts of the business, from customer service advisors to bid solution managers, and this shows that there is a range of career options available to people at Webhelp.

“Our people are our most important asset and Webhelp is extremely grateful to these 66 role models for their commitment and support. I look forward to celebrating with them again in another five years!”

Almost 50 of the Long Service Award winners and their partners attended a special evening at the famous Cameron House Hotel on the shores of Loch Lomond, hosted by chief operating officer, Andy Doig and Webhelp’s people director, Gillian Campbell.

They were given a certificate, a £40 voucher to spend at Cameron House Hotel and vouchers for £100 (for 10 years’ service), £150 (for 15 years’ service) or £200 (for 20 years’ service) each.
