Customer experience provider, Webhelp UK, has celebrated the 795 years of combined service achieved by its most dedicated team members, at two annual awards ceremonies.
A total of 69 team members were recognised for providing 10 years of service or more at Webhelp’s sites across the UK, as part of the ‘length of service’ celebrations. The events were held at the prestigious Trump Turnberry Resort in South Ayrshire, Scotland and the Grand Hotel, York earlier this month.
Webhelp UK chief executive officer, David Turner, chief operating officer Andy Doig and people director, Gillian Campbell joined team members and their families to present the awards on the night.
Providing customer experience solutions on behalf of leading brands which includes Sky and EE, Webhelp UK has a 6,000-strong team based across ten UK sites.
Webhelp UK’s longest-standing team member, Jacqui Reynolds, was awarded for her 20 years of service at its Rothesay customer experience centre in Scotland. Jacqui was one of the very first recruits at the Rothesay site, having begun her career as a receptionist before moving to the recruitment team and eventually becoming a campaign manager.
A further ten team members from Rothesay were recognised for their continued commitment to the business, with Catherine Docherty, Helen McCallum, Irene Hughes, Jacqueline Howard and Janet McKay all awarded for their 15 years of service at the site.
Fiona McCartan, Bridget McKay, Nicola Wilkins and Samantha Wilson also received awards for 15 years of service at the Dunoon customer experience centre, located on the west coast of Scotland with three more team members being recognised for 10 years of service.
Over 30 awards went to the team from the Dearne Valley centre in Yorkshire, with each member awarded for 10 years of service, while individuals from Webhelp UK’s Falkirk and Greenock sites were also rewarded for their length of service. Together, all 69 award winners have managed to accumulate just under 800 years’ worth of service in total during their time at Webhelp UK.
Commenting on the ‘length of service’ awards, David Turner, CEO at Webhelp UK, said:
“Celebrating the continued commitment of our team is something that is very important to us at Webhelp. Our people are at the very heart of our business and have played an integral role in the significant growth that Webhelp has experienced over the past 20 years. Each individual has also shown a real dedication to the motivation of their immediate teams, whilst their experience is a fantastic support to newer members. These day-to-day actions have a really positive impact on our community and the wider Webhelp Group and we are extremely grateful to our award winners, who should all be very proud of themselves for their long-standing service.”
