Webhelp Kilmarnock has a 550-strong team. Since February 2013, the site has introduced a range of initiatives to promote best practice and to highlight the importance of leading healthy lives. It is the first Webhelp site to receive the commendation, after achieving its bronze award in 2013.

Webhelp has introduced ‘Fruity Fridays’ and the option for colleagues to have their blood pressure checked. Webhelp also launched its first health fair for employees and a newsletter promoting healthy eating, the benefits of physical activity and the importance of looking after their mental health.
