25th October 2016

Leading global customer experience outsourcer, Webhelp, celebrated the dedication and commitment of its colleagues at the company’s annual Star Awards held last week in The Bay Hotel, Camps Bay, Cape Town.

 

Representatives from sites across South Africa gathered for a Gatsby-themed gala dinner and drinks reception hosted by actor and presenter Nico Panagio.

 

Also on hand to provide the entertainment were Webhelp’s Got Talent winners singer Terrence Makhaye and hip hop dancers Wesley Henry and Shana-Lee Williams.

 

A total of 11 awards for excellence were handed out on the night, with six of the winners coming from Johannesburg.

Craig Gibson, CEO of Webhelp SA, said:

“Tonight is about thanking the team for a job well done this year. It has been an amazing year for Webhelp. We’ve gained major new clients, such as Unilever, announced significant acquisitions, including the recent purchase of top Nordic customer excellence firm, GoExcellent, now known as Webhelp Nordic, and brought on board a fantastic new major shareholder, the global investment group, KKR.

“None of these amazing achievements would have been possible without the dedication, hard work and commitment to creating the highest quality customer experience that our colleagues deliver day in and day out. I am tremendously proud of the team and congratulate them on their wonderful performance this year.”

 

The 11 awards were as follows:

  • Brightest Star of the Year – Palesa Meletse, who has worked at the Parktown, Johannesburg site for two and a half years.
