Furthermore, Webhelp has been shortlisted twice in the people specific category for ‘Team of the Year’ led by Jaclyn McKenzie in Derby and ‘Professional of the Year’ for Mark Charlton, Compliance Manager at Webhelp’s Derby site.
The professionalism and results delivered by Mark over the last 12 months has led him to be a standout employee providing sound advice and improved quality of care for clients.

The team in Derby is further recognised for the huge impact it has had on speed and accuracy of service as well as enhancing customer satisfaction for clients.

Commenting on the nominations, David Turner, CEO at Webhelp UK, said: “To be shortlisted in not one but three categories is testament to the hard work and dedication demonstrated by teams and individuals across the business.
