Royal seal of approval for Webhelp UK

21st September 2012

Webhelp UK Dearne Valley receives official visit from the Duke of York.

 

The South Yorkshire centre has been a part of the Webhelp UK network since 2004 and employee numbers there have virtually trebled in the past eight years.

Over 830 staff now work there for clients such as Vodafone, E-on and Office Depot and a number of employees had the chance to meet and chat with our VIP visitor as he toured the site – regularly stopping to chat en route.

Welcomed by Sunil Kant Munjal, Webhelp UK Chairman and escorted round the site by company CEO David Turner, the Duke was keen to speak to as many staff as possible and learn many aspects of the job.

The Royal visitor asked a variety of questions. “How long have you worked here” “What opportunities have you had to progress?” – the positive and confident answers explaining why the site continues to grow with an ongoing recruitment and training programme to bring new jobs to the area.

The fact that the Duke of York stayed well over his allotted time and spoke to so many of our staff underlines the positive impression they made with him. – David Turner, CEO

At the end of an informative visit, His Royal Highness unveiled a commemorative plaque and had words of encouragement and praise for the staff he had met.

His Royal Highness visited Webhelp UK following an invitation extended by Sunil Kant Munjal, Webhelp UK Chairman, during The Duke of York’s Diamond Jubilee visit to India in May of this year..

David Turner was delighted at the visit and the response from His Royal Highness.

“The Duke of York had a busy diary on the day – with a number of different engagements in the area,” said the CEO. “The fact that he stayed well over his allotted time and spoke to so many of our staff underlines the positive impression they made with him.

“I was immensely proud of them all.”
