Webhelp operates with a high level of social responsibility, and our determination to conduct business in an ethical, fair and enlightened way challenges us to be better for our people and for our communities.
Webhelp is passionate about upholding human rights and promoting diversity. We partner with local authorities on issues affecting vulnerable groups, and consistently offer employment and training opportunities.
We are involved with a number of charities and have held fundraisers for organisations like the Dutch Cancer Society, the Dutch Brain Foundation, the Children Cancer Free Foundation, and the Dutch Heart Foundation. We also support animal welfare organisations and the work of food banks. In 2016 we will be working to adopt new policies in line with recent legislation on the hiring of people with disabilities.
We offer positive working conditions, and provide a pleasant and modern working environment. Our commitment to health and safety has been consistently strong since the company launched, and we continually strive to improve conditions in line with evolving standards. Webhelp also places considerable emphasis on offering social benefits and respecting the culture of our unique communities.
Webhelp Nederland is a member of the Werkgeversvereniging Facilitaire Contactcenters (WFC). This employers’ association negotiates with unions on their agreements with contact centres, ensuring that employers and workers’ organisations are communicating well for the benefit of everybody involved.
Webhelp’s drive to promote increased environmental responsibility and mitigate the impact of climate change has led to a range of successful initiatives. The environment will continue to be a high priority for Webhelp, and as time goes on we will continue to update processes and policies as needed to ensure our operations have minimal environmental impact.
Our people are educated to recognise the signs of extortion, bribery and other unlawful or unethical practices. Ethical company policies, careful suppler evaluation and advanced software tools for checking and processing requisitions have all contributed to Webhelp’s anti-corruption initiative.
Webhelp has a number of certifications that attest to our professionalism, regard for compliance, and focus on high quality. Webhelp won the prestigious Customer Operations Performance Centre (COPC) certification for the eighth consecutive time in 2015. It is the first contact centre to have the Benelux-certified COPC. Our certification demonstrates our commitment to high quality standards across the entire organisation, and we have our own COPC department as part of our Business Intelligence team.
Webhelp is also a member of the Klantenservice Federatie (KSF), a trade organisation for contact centres, and the Customer Contact Management Association (CCMA), both of which affirm our commitment to best practice and quality.
